Day 03 NaPoWriMo 2019

Time is a word we revere
There once was time unnoted

A time when we didn't count ,
time we spent with another

A time of story exchange
or at night watching the stars

Then there was plenty of time
We didn't charge or collect
 _ _ _

As time passed time became scarce
Commodity bought and sold

Merchandise handling charges
to be expected like tips

Lost time lawsuits recovered
Waiting time, preparation
 _ _ _

Bible time, Solomon's time

"There's a time for everything, for every activity 
    a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot,

    a time to kill and a time to heal,
    a time to tear down and a time to build, 

    a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance, 

    a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, 

    a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away, 

    a time to tear and a time to mend, 
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,

    a time to love and a time to hate, 
    a time for war and a time for peace." 

(Ecclesiastes 3, verses 1 - 8, New International Version,

time ... I think the older we get the more we cherish the time where we slow down, don't glance at our watches, don't "charge or collect"
