an original poem

I felt a warm ocean breeze and
A hammock called out to me
It breathed the oceans melody
Tickled my neck as it beckoned me

I couldn't resist
The smell so loud
And the sound so delicious

As I approached
Ready to lay
And shift and absorb
And give this hammock form

I saw something
Upon each fiber
And it frightened me

The hammock was created
Entirely of time
Each particle and each string
Each knot and every twist

There was never a question
Before this beautiful life
Whether I would take this ride
