If had the time -- a set of poems for Tuesday Platform

If Only I Had Time 

I'd clean the garage
I'd buy my spouse a new car
wait that takes money

- - - - - - - - - - -

if I had the time
cookies for the folks I'd make
my time's in the jar

- - - - - - - - - - -

all it takes is time
what they told me long ago
my time's gone I'm old

- - - - - - - - - - -

if I had the time
I'd write a nice little poem
wait I'm no poet

- - - - - - - - - - -

I'd give you the time
clocks have stopped would if I could
if I had the time

Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do. Edgar Dégas
The same goes for my poetry attempts (don't know how, but I enjoy it!).

Copied from my older post of January 25, 2009 and submitted for this week's Tuesday Platform

It is a compilation of five senryu verses.  The clocks along with several other clocks and a toy poodle, Katrin, were gifts to Mrs. Jim from her very dear friend.
Katrin died December 2, 2014 of heart failure.  We loved Katrin so very much.

Time imposes limitations against the desire to achieve. But it is to be expected. One needs to adjust to maximize the privilege.

Time is rather stingy fellow, isn't he?

I love how the speaker tells us about his non-poetic leanings... in a collection of poems. :)
