Eternity, says the mountain
when referencing time

Centuries, says the forest
whose trees grace its side

Decades, say the roadway
who winds and weaves by

Hours, say the vehicles
who dare to make the drive

Seconds, says the victim
whose distraction is demise.

(Today’s NaPoWriMo challenge is to bring something big together with something small.)
