Reena’s Xploration Challenge #172 – Components of Time

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Home” by William Stafford: father, star, light, tragedy, faces, front, door, came, near, locks, own, believe

What are the components of time?

High and down time

Every second

Time to reckon

How far or near tragedy comes

Own front door drums

Believe or not

We face or fraught

Star light star bright in sky

No need to cry

Father is here

He’s such a dear*
