Time by Shayla Parsons (Highly Commended)

time
collects 
its ruins
of civilizations
people and
individual lives
time looks back 
on her collection
of myriads of towers
built up only to fall
within her own landscape
time admires her 
moments of yearnings
and how beautifully
they gradually
decay, fall apart
until nothing remains
time is happy
she does not hold 
onto anything
she just goes on
collecting in 
spite of it 
all
