There are people who watch Doctor Who as if it is a documentary and dream of one day being able to travel anywhere in the universe or back and forward in time. The TARDIS is science fiction of course, but nature gave each of us our own Time Machine


Time Travellers or Hamlet's Mill

(Metaphysical Love and the time travelling mind)

You visited my dream last night,
beyond boundaries of time and space,
sliding between layers of sleep
and consciousness, to find a place
where infinite dimensions meet.
There dancing constellations trace
magic symbols on the boundless sky.
We stood; and watched time pass us by,

saw past and future all as one
unravelling before our eyes.
We sailed the Nile on a reed barge,
watched Sarum's great henge arise,
and saw self - righteous cant betray
a human being's sacrifice
all for the sake of greed and lust.
And Hamlet's Mill ground time to dust.

Your hand found mine, the stars moved on
and neither of us said a word.
For an hour, or maybe for all time
what passed between us could be heard
through the entire universe.
All things were one, death seemed absurd
as our bleak world moved far away.
We wanted nothing but to stay,

Love was the unifying force
and we, no longer curious
walked silently towards the stars.
Words then only seemed spurious
when silence spoke of everything.
We were the whole, all things were us.

We were gone when morning came
                 to gather up exhausted dreams.




1) Sarum's great henge is Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain, Sarum being the ancient name of Salisbury.

2) Hamlet's Mill, a reference to an astronomical phenomonon known as The Precession of the Equinoxes. Hamlet is a corruption of Amleth, in Norse Mythology a demigod.
