A question of time & paradox

A Question of Time.


As if the day, were that once before day,

Eternal day, or just that first, human day,

Could be this day more than but erased

Until now & this memory mere nostalgia.


Indeed that day was but human, as now, a

Question of time, look backwards, it’s said.

Count the light years, whilst predicated dead,

Multiply into eternal multiple diversity,


Variety, assortment, many-ness, plurality.

& this day so fresh & new, what of its fate?

Day of air & mist, of brick & broken bucket

At the gate, a winding blue polythene sheet,


A door swung on a hinge, a whitewashed wall,

Is time, naked, a shadow, does it fall, or, not all?

This has so many depth-filled questions laced within a few lines, and has a real wisdom to it, the type of thing where multiple readings glean multiple meanings. Very well-written.

Now this truly made me think and that's a good thing. Well penned and profound.

A poetic mind
squeezed the universe
and a drop of aesthetic honey
anointed his pen.
Excellent imaging Robin,
Your first stanza blew me away!
All the best in the New Year!
