Focus of Time

clock

Drawing first breath
Milky eyes open
Needing to focus on the nexus

Eyes wide, searching
For the warm arms that protect
The sweet breast that nurtures

In the blink of an eye, the focus shifts
The universe spins
Around friendships, best mates

Blink again
Longing to belong
Acceptance becomes critical as breath

Another blink
Independence
Self-sufficiency is the goal, the target

In a twinkle, a shift
To become the cornerstone
Others relying on you for support, love

Glance away
Success oriented
Pulling, reaching for a better place

The blink of an eye
Slowing a bit
But not ready to stop

Blink
Milky eyes open
Remembering what was important

The legacy

The shifting focus of time
