Patience, Persistence and Perspiration

How many colors have you seen?
How many shades in between?
How many seconds till the day is through?
How many more before the day is new?
~
How many questions must I ask?
How many answers to complete the task?
How many times can I persist?
How many times can I resist?
~
How many redundancies before I’m done.
How many more was it than one?
How many poems must I write?
How many days will I see night?

Today’s Poem

Today’s poem’s a mixed bag of thought,
overwhelmed with input this poet fraught.
Barraged by beginnings, none’s caught,
words forged honesty’s wrought.

Hours fly, seconds’ drag, a minute sought.
Dreaming recollections, time’s bought.
Feelings unchanged, thinking’s naught.
Patience perseveres, love has taught.
