The Watch

The following was in response to a challenge to create a piece that did not use the same word twice (including the Title):


The Watch

This symbol of life lived bequeathed for safekeeping into the future. Its workings represent passing seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years endured until energies expended denote an end that has been charted long before birth.  Tarnished gold casing, cracked crystal measure toil, hardship and pain suffered through life’s enduring past brought forward in rewarding peace.

Grave markers symbolize forever what shall be given to lives remaining as memory’s keeper endowed by material possessions gained, accumulate, box stored, preserved, weathered-age signs showing.

Cemetery gate’s embrace quells past turbulence beneath soil demarcating Souls’ light risen, body’s deep sleep.
