the complexity of time

neither forward,nor behind

invisible wheels turn

gaining speed on each curve


yesterday is in now’s tomorrow

for better or worse, we borrow

nothing to hold in your hand

time is flexible in the intent to understand


time is a throwback within years

spinning the living through mirrors

where death waits at the door

time is what we want more


reflection of days gone by

turning days into nights

twilight gives way to dawn

dusk goes further beyond


seconds wrapped in minutes

not for the weak and timid

minutes spun into the golden hours

as the seed becomes the flower


for all time is not a straight line

forever is not left behind

words make time immortal

as humans pass through each portal


their hands move through space

clockwise upon each other’s face

neither here nor there

eternity is what will be shared

    1. Hello My Faraway Friend 🙂
      i’m glad you stopped by, i miss your thoughts
      life is so intersecting with time i seem to get lost more lately, but as the song goes, “missing is my favorite place to be”
      i focus on moment to moment these days, getting done what needs to be done, i enjoy taking care of my mom, so even though i get tired, i take breaks, i spent last weekend at the coast, it was hot and i did get a nice rosy sunburn LOLs…but i enjoyed being with my daughter and grandchildren…..came back with a renewed spirit, the ocean has a great effect on me these days…
      i hope you and yours are doing well in your neck of the woods…
