Haiku: Will 25/7 Give Us More Time?

Haiku:  Will 25/7 Give Us More Time?
Haiku: Will 25/7 Give Us More Time?

We gained an hour
Twenty-Five Seven won’t do…
Why, you ask? Time flies!

Icarus found out
Our time is ephemeral…
Heaven holds the truth

First I imagined how great it could be. Then I realized what a time suck it might become. If I manage my current time well, I have nothing to worry about. If I don’t then the extra hour wont help me much… Pity really but that’s a fact. We say we need it, and then we abuse it.

“The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.” Albert Einstein

We danced in the street
As If 25/7
Will save us some time…

We took a long ride
And lay waste that extra time.
An hour here, there…

Giving us extra time won’t make much of a difference. Those who manage it well, won’t notice. Those who waste time, will procrastinate. We’ve barely mastered 24/7 so 25/7 won’t make a difference. I say ditch it and let’s figure out how to make the best of the time we already have…. 24/7 all the way.

Extra time means extra waste…
We lost what we gained

So what do you think?
Replace the old with the new…

This post was inspired by a Daily Post Prompt:Twenty-Five Seven
Good news — another hour has just been added to every 24-hour day (don’t ask us how. We have powers). How do you use those extra sixty minutes?

Positive Motivation Tip:What you do with your time is your business. Make the best use of it and have no regrets.

  • Thank you for this post! I love the concept and truth behind (within) it. It is clearly written and FUN! I agree with you about that one more hour even though I complain about needing an extra Saturday in the weekend. I am one of those procrastinators… *guilty smile”

  • Great post! So much fun, I loved doing this when younger. Don’t think I’m talented enough to come up with any.

    Also think I need a few extra hours added per day!

  • “We say we need it, and then we abuse it.”
    So true!! When my office location switched and I realized I would save over 2 hours of transportation every day, I was ready to use that time productively. Then I ended up not using that time productively at all, but wasting it….

  • Poetry, especially Haiku, was something I always struggled with WAY back in high school, but you have such a great talent. These were so fun to read….thanks so much!

  • I wish I had more time. I try to fit 2 days into one and get disappointed when i cannot get everything accomplished.

  • I’m such a procrastinator lol. I work best under pressure, I guess that’s why. Thanks for the fun post.

  • Omg I would sleep. And sleep. I couldn’t get enough! Why, oh WHY did we fight naps as children??!!!

  • The whole idea of this is so interesting, and I love the different haikus! They’re so thought-provoking.

  • Well, your post made me realize that extra time won’t solve the problem, I will find ways to fill it up with things like Facebook and dawdling around. What I need is to be more organized with the time I do have.

  • I’m afraid I’m a master of procrastination. I also flit from thing to thing and eat up time that way.

  • What a nice Haiku! I can realize the concept and the truth behind the poetry. Thanks for a fun haiku. I love the lines ‘Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.’ from William Penn.

  • I love this! And it makes me think…I really need to organise my time better, because with an extra 60 minutes I don’t think I’d be any more productive!

  • Yep! It feels like no matter how much time we wish we had, we really only lose the time that is most precious. That is what we make of it.
