Time Out

17 02 2010

The second hand ticks off momentary time
lives in the Now from the heights to the depths in a minute

Then the calendar takes over
bills paid, plans made and penciled in

The next step back from time is history
centuries considered and wars and dynasties

Another step back and geology inches along like the drift of continents
a hundred million years the earth takes just to wash its face

The camera pulls out to cosmic time where yugas and light years live
when a star winks at you, it happened a million years ago

In the time shell beyond that, big bangs happen every second
universes warm and cool and god is still a rookie
