The Time Chasers

The Time Chasers

The art of conquering time

Lies, perhaps, in its chase,

And not in its control.

Liberate, and flow with its edges and curves,

Just like the river flows

Along its winding path,

Creating sweet symphony through its ripples

As it evolves into the mightier ocean;

Or how the mountain tries to reach for the zenith

Enduring millions of years of harshness

To earn the grandeur that it craves;

Or the seasons changing their colours

From soothing whites in winter

To the charming chromes of spring,

Creating lasting imagery.


Nature, with its opulent treasures,

Goes through a chronology of metamorphosis

In pursuit of existence,

Chasing time!

Like the butterfly emerging from its cocoon,

Spreads its colourful wings to take its flight,

And at that moment,

It knows,

There is no looking back!

So true! Time does seem to be travelling faster with each year passing by. Happy to know that you liked it, dear Peggy. Stay blessed always.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on April 10, 2021:

The older I get, the more that time seems to speed up. I enjoyed your poetry regarding time, the seasons, and even the butterfly emerging from its cocoon.

Farah N Huq (author) from Dhaka, Bangladesh on April 10, 2021:

Thank you so much, dear Treshty. I am delighted to know that you liked it. Yes dear, we were talking about Ms. Lorna Lamon and yes she told me that she's busy with the hospital.Thank you for confirming it. I am a medical doctor too. That's the reason why I vanish from hubpages at regular intervals as well. Part of our routine. If you are in touch with her please do convey my regards and blessings to her. Looking forward to getting more feedbacks from you, dear Treshty. Stay blessed always!

Chrish Canosa from Manila Philippines on April 10, 2021:

Beautiful piece. Thanks for sharing your wonderful imagination with us!!! I enjoyed reading it. I noticed sir John's comment. If you guys are taiking about Ms Lorna lamon, she has been busy in the hospital due to the covid crises. Ms Lorna is a medical doctor. May the spirit of God be with her. Blessings and kisses to you Ms farah [wink]

Farah N Huq (author) from Dhaka, Bangladesh on April 09, 2021:

Yes, John, I hope so too! I wrote to her around a month or two back to see how she was doing and she was fine then, just a little busy with her career. Hopefully she will return to hubpages soon. May the Almighty keep us all safe and sound.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on April 09, 2021:

I miss Lorna’s poetry and comments too Farah. I was just thinking of her the other day and that I hadn’t seen anything from her in awhile. I hope she is ok.

Farah N Huq (author) from Dhaka, Bangladesh on April 09, 2021:

Thank you so much, dear Misbah, for asking! That is so thoughtful of you to remember! He is doing fine so far ALHAMDULILLAH! This is going to be the second week. So still a bit worried but hopefully IN SHAA ALLAH everything will be fine. I am also glad to know you enjoyed the poem. Love to get feedbacks from you. Stay blessed always, dear sister. May peace be upon you and your loved ones as well!

Farah N Huq (author) from Dhaka, Bangladesh on April 09, 2021:

Thank you so much, dear Brenda! I am very happy to know that you enjoyed reading it! Yes, we can only move forward chasing time as we go. Looking forward to getting more feedbacks from you. Stay blessed always!

Misbah Sheikh from The World of Poets on April 09, 2021:

Farah, this is a very lovely poem. I enjoyed it. How are you and your family, dear sister? I remember you told me about your husband, I hope all is well now.

May Allah Always Bless You and Your Family. Ameen!!

Peace!!

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on April 09, 2021:

I love this poem.

This part

Like the butterfly emerging from its cocoon,

Spreads its colourful wings to take its flight,

And in that moment,

It knows!

There is no looking back!

Oh...is is true.

We can't go backwards...we do chase time

Farah N Huq (author) from Dhaka, Bangladesh on April 09, 2021:

Yes, they do as a matter of fact and isn't that a coincidence haha! Just read it and it's a masterpiece! Your comments have always motivated me to keep writing, dear John, and I always kind of wait to get a feedback from you. I miss Lorna too. Both of you have been an inspiration for me. Would love to see the advertisement for Bose headphones soon and thanks again for your generosity! Stay blessed dear!

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on April 09, 2021:

What a wonderful poem is “The Time Chasers.” You cannot control time, but you can certainly chase it. I enjoyed this, Farah, as I do all your poetry. It reminds me a little of my latest poem “Hear the Night.”

Yours is about time and mine, the night, but they have a similar vibe.

Farah N Huq (author) from Dhaka, Bangladesh on April 09, 2021:

Ji ami bhalo achi! (yes, I am fine!) ALHAMDULILLAH!

lol Thank you for asking, dear Manatita! So thoughtful of you! I do not speak Arabic though haha so I thought of answering in Bangla instead. Glad you liked it dear. Blessings for you too!

manatita44 from london on April 09, 2021:

An exquisite piece! Lovely and succinct exposition on Time.

Kayfa Haluki? (How are you?), my Didi Ji? Stay blessed.
