Hi Diana! ;-)

cool night-fingered hair
pulsing cicadas
time's arrhythmia


I keep coming back to this poem.

I wonder if you could edit it a different way, and remove "time's"?

e.g.

arrhythmia
my cool night-fingered hair
pulsing cicadas


arrhythmia: wikipedia link

all my best,

I wasn't really pleased with "time's" either, but was at a loss otherwise.
I think I like your version minus "my".
