The Watch


Responding to the challenge to write on any topic, using exactly 100 words without using the same word inclusive of articles, excluding the title of the piece, twice: 

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 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’s signs showing.

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