What is so great?

What is so great about Time

If it can’t heal yesterday’s wounds?


What is so great about Time

if it can’t shoot Spring

over Autumn-swept ground?


Caning and caring

are strange ways no doubt

but, Time is both

an exponent and expert in the two.



  1. Lovely poem, Sunamu. People say, ‘Time heals’ but it doesn’t, or it hasn’t, healed me. I love the second stanza the most. What a wonderful way to express your thoughts – a stunningly beautiful picture. And the last is so true. Time can punish us and also sometimes make the pain a little less.

    I am so happy to see you writing again. Selfish, I know, but you do write such inspired words. I hope you are keeping well, my friend.

  2. Dear Denise,

    Thank you dear friend for the concern. Yes, I am OK having got back to my native country and settling slowly well.

    I was a bit busy preoccupied with some immediate domestic concerns. This poem is a result of its prompt.

    Thank you again

    it is really a wonderful expression. people go with the time cherish, and people do not go with the time blunder, anchoring themselves to one pain or one happy moment, leading them into boredom.

    yours friendly,
