JOHN FOWLER: Tick and Tock


Tick and tock, the hall clock’s persistent twins.

One his sister, the other her brother.

With hammers of gold, they relentlessly break the present into bits.

Slippery seconds which pass by unnoticed and unused on the way to becoming our past.

So savor the here and now while you can.

John Fowler served twenty years in the US Air Force before retiring and starting a second career in the IT field. He is also a Lay Pastor serving a small church near his home in Texas. His hobbies include reading, golfing, writing, and now oil painting (and teaching painting lessons).
