Haiku: Will 25/7 Give Us More Time?

Spread the love

“We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.” Nelson Mandela

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

Haiku:  Will 25/7 Give Us More Time?

Haiku: Will 25/7 Give Us More Time?

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.

“Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.” William Penn

Haiku:  Will 25/7 Give Us More Time?

Haiku: Will 25/7 Give Us More Time?

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.

    Nice haikus!

    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”

      You and me both. I know that extra hour won’t help me when I”m zoned out or procrastinating. TY! Guilty too. 😉

    I am not much of a procrastinator, I like to use my time wisely (except for some evening hours when my guilty pleasure is watching TV).

    You have a way of always quoting from people who are my heroes. Nelson Mandela is pretty much at the top of that list, along with Ghandi, the Dali Lama and a few others

    “We’ve barely mastered 24/7 so 25/7 won’t make a difference.” I LOVE THAT! So true.

    What fun Eliz, a lovely idea and great haiku 🙂

    I really need to make more of my time. I am always procrastinating.

    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….

    I would use the extra to hour to sleep! 😉

    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!

  13. 14/10/2014 2:00 pm

    I’ve never been great at poetry, but you, on the other hand are quite good at it. These are so fun….thanks so much!

  14. 14/10/2014 2:06 pm

    I know I could definitely use some more time. Thanks for sharing this wonderful Haiku with us.

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

    I was just hoping I had a few more hours today.

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

  18. 14/10/2014 4:33 pm

    I love your take. 🙂 With Daylight Savings approaching, I hear myself clear as a bell in your haiku. 🙂

    I can’t believe how fast time is flying! It’s almost Halloween. How is that possible?!

    I want another hour! Mainly for sleep though!

  21. 14/10/2014 5:14 pm

    Great post.! I will spend the extra hour sleeping! That’s the only time I will get at least 8 hours. lol. It’s only for one day though. 🙂

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

  23. 14/10/2014 7:28 pm

    Time does fly! And it’s so important to use it wisely! Thank you for the reminder.

    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.

  27. 14/10/2014 8:59 pm

    Can you add even more time to my day? LOL

  28. 14/10/2014 10:56 pm

    Very cool! I remember loving the lesson I had on Haiku when I was in school:)

  29. 14/10/2014 11:02 pm

    Such a lovely poem. And I love that Albert Einstein quote!

  30. 15/10/2014 6:24 am

    This definitely is food for thought. I love the quotes by Albert Einstein and William Penn. Definitely makes sense!

  31. 15/10/2014 6:30 am

    I always love your positive motivation tips! I really need to start making the best use of my time w/o regrets.

  32. 15/10/2014 7:00 am

    While the idea of 25/7 is a good one on the surface, if we cannot learn to use 24/7 the25 won’t make a difference.

  33. 15/10/2014 7:41 am

    I love your message. Your haiju is beautiful

  34. 15/10/2014 7:45 am

    I agree w/Trisha that’s a good tip. And i like the poem, you did a great job w/the prompt!

  35. 15/10/2014 9:01 am

    I am looking forward to setting the clocks back! However, I dont think there is ever enough time in the day!

  36. 15/10/2014 9:07 am

    very cool. i could use a few more hours in a day

    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!

  39. 19/10/2014 6:31 pm

    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.
