This is a well crafted rondel that is lovely in its flow and profound in its message. When we procrastinate - thinking we have time to spare - we soon realize that time has been foolishly wasted. Now we have become just a pile of sand ourselves. Well done.

You tried ever to consign time to a glass but time is not a steady marching path and it craves quick pace when you are at leisure; well said, well done. Keep Writing, Keep Inspiring -- DR ALCREATOR

This is very good... I enjoyed the use of the word poignant because it really is that caliber of a poem. I especially like the phrase.... sifts of sands... Good job and I wish you good luck in this Rondel contest mav....

This work has reached the exceptional level
What a great idea. If it could be done it would be marvelous. Just don't bother to turn the glass and time stands still. And then you bring us all back to earth with a jolt because we are time and the only way one can manage to do this is to turn our ashes into the sand. Theis is the best rondel I have seen for a long time. Have a six for Christmas.

I loved the form and sentiments and we consigned our time to the glass, the hour, the minute the second of life we are devoted, we learn, we live, we die, love Dolly x

This rondel, Grains in a Glass, has the proper formatting and presents a bittersweet analysis of a life that has been measured out yet still ends up in a glass where time stands still.

This is a good poem, you've followed the structure well with good ryhme word choice and a smooth flow from beginning to end describing the flow of sand in the time glass. Good job!
