Secondhand

the second hand counts down
on a second-hand clock
it needs winding up
the year has turned
and every
second
counts

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads NaPoWriMo: Second

Karin is hosting today’s prompt, which is ‘’second ‘in any of its forms, such as: second helpings, second chances, coming in second, seconding a motion, second sight, a second set, second in line, second child, second growth, second to none, only a second, seconds to go… She has also shared some of her drawings to inspire us.

  1. That’s an incredible painting, Kim!❤️ I read this as the value of time and how one puts it to good use and yes how utterly lost we would be without that clock! 🙂 Happy April!❤️
