The Hours – Georgiann Carlson — Brave & Reckless

how many hours are in a minute
you might think the answer is none
but you would be wrong
when those you love are dying
time does strange things
it’s not what we think it is
it moves
it shrinks
and stretches
and sometimes
minutes
are as long as hours

  1. It’s so true, this is so poignant Gi. I too have a poem titled the hours. ❤️

  2. I remember it now. So amazing. You absolutely must do a book. Your work is so incredible and you can touch it, it’s so real, reaching all the senses and making all of us feel as we are inside your words. I want a copy, whenever you’re ready. Really. That way I can read your poems again and again and carry them with me.
