Time Evolves

Light, you see no time –
Everything happens at once.
You are becoming.

Quantum particles,
You live life uncertainly.
You are just likely.

Chemicals, crystals,
Things for you go either way.
You are determined.

Plants and animals,
All of life eats, breeds, and breathes.
What’re your intentions?

And now there is man,
A life of symbolic goals.
Are we most timeful?


  1. All occurs in one flash-- one instant-- and it is us human minds who see each occurrence in pivotal slow motion-- point by point-- the geometry of space unfolds in events and complex patterns. All is past, we are an infinite prologue.

  2. By the way, I love this poem. It is sharp, distinct, and focused. Brevity is the soul of wit.


I appreciate all constructive comments.
