Time Will Tell

I’ve heard people say,

“Time will tell.”

But it seems like Time

is being awfully tight-lipped these days.

I mean, Time ain’t talkin’.

Time apparently has found a secret

it wants to keep.

Time keeps passing,

but its lips are sealed.

It is maintaining a resolute poker face,

not tipping its hand.

Time refuses to snitch.

It is withstanding relentless interrogation.

It is not giving us any new leads or clues.

It is not naming names.

It is not cutting a deal.

Time is resolute.

Time is not telling us anything.

At least,

not yet.

I guess…

you know…

eventually…

Time

will

tell

.

.

Right?

.

That’s what people say.

  1. An engaging and cleverly written poem. Yes, I think time will tell…eventually! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Cheryl. Yep, eventually. Although I think sometimes what we think Time is telling us is not what actually happened?

  2. Well written, gets one thinking, what does time know that we don’t? It seems to me that time keeps running away faster and faster, as if not to be caught, perhaps, because it doesn’t want to tell!

    • Thank you! Good one. Time does indeed keep getting ahead of us, faster and faster. Well, at least it feels like time is ahead of us, eh?

      • There never seems to be enough of it, that’s for sure. I guess for all of us, one day … it will run out 😦 Best make the most of it πŸ˜€

  3. Indeed! Keep taking those excellent photos, Tone!!

  4. Hey, Tone. By the way, my photos do not compare to yours – but I have a little ‘gallery’ over at https://shotsthatsnap.blogspot.com/ – if you care to take a peek…

  5. So true. Hopefully time is a friend in times like these.

    • Good one, Gary. The question of whether Time is our friend is something to ponder!

  6. Time. It’s going faster and faster. That’s all I know! Like that foot on the gas pedal, the closer to home we get! Petal to the metal. πŸ˜‰
