watch the sand slip by

try to catch it, uselessly

turn the hourglass

No matter how we try, we can’t stop time.  Instead of looking back hopelessly at time that is already spent, we can turn the hourglass and look forward to the future. ⏳

    1. Thank you, I’m glad you like it! (^u^)

      Haiku are a poems with simple rules:
      1.) There are three lines.
      2.) The first and third line are five syllables.
      3. ) The second line is seven syllables.
      So it goes: 5-7-5 syllables.
      I like how simple the rules are, so I write haiku a lot! (^u^)
