I see a cascade of moments
tumbling over one another
in a hurry to join the stream
that will merge with the river
that flows out to the sea, the
moments are in a race to become
minutes,and by the time they get
to the sea they'll become hours,
days,months, years, in what we
call time which has no beginning
or end

Yet one sees the dichotomy,
a moment has to die to become
a minute, doesn't it? Or does it?
If I snap my finger, which takes
only a moment, the action is
over, gone in the moment, but
does the moment that becomes
the minute, etc live on?

If so, does the snap of my finger
live on in some unseen moment
of time, does then all that we are,
or all we have ever done, live on
forever in the continuum of time,
which makes one wonder, should
we pay more attention to the
moments we have in life, for we
may one day, meet up with them,
and will we greet them with regret
or with fond remembrance~

Seneca said, "Time is like a river." Deep thought here, trying to get at the essence of time and what it means to us. Love the introspection.

Boy did you say a mouthful there, yes all is in the moment, linear time is a perception of ours with which we measure all we do, but we live in a soup of the all together. all the time, there we go again,
Bless You, and Hugs! Jasmin Horst

A very thought provoking poem Eileen. There is always a great deal of realitivity in a rhetorical question such as you have proposed here. I will continue to ponder at least some of the endless possibilities of "does time live on". Even though I know time exists only in the minds of men. And not as an entity unto itself. I hope your are taking very good care of your eyes. Thanks for this beautifully written, well thought out poem. May peace be always with you. JMW

Eileen, this write causes this writer to stop and really give this some thoughts. I've often thought about the words that are spoken cascading over mountains, through the seas, remaining in the atmosphere to stay there forever. This causes one to have great imaginations of our life in general and do our actions live forever? There's profound excellence in this writing and I enjoyed it much.

So good to have you back with us, E.T.! Missed you bunches, and missed your phylosophical words.
"...does the snap of my finger..." It remains forever within us; the echo of rememberances, I think. Deep, inticing thoughts in your words, friend; they encourage our images of life. Be well and healing.
Blessings and Love ~~ Micke

Eileen, this is so lovely and so profound...and ther last two lines leave the reader with much to ponder.
Reviewed by Lois Christensen 5/16/2008
I thought moments make hours. All that we do will be judged by God our maker. So I guess we have a lot to own up to. We should therefore pay more attention to the moments we have in life, and try to have no regrets, but ask for forgiveness when we stay, and meet up with fond remembrances of our loved ones. **********
