Time Talks

midnight-clock

(source)

Hands chose to halt upon all faces

Numerals in hibernation

Suspending time and animation

Frozen still near midnight

 

Every digit waits its turn

Unswept, idle in formation,

Rested, useless at their stations,

While time regains its fight

 

Paused on play, asleep to hours,

Imperfect planetary rotation

Life still beats in preparation

Given second sight

 

Movement in the galaxies

Parallels in consternation

Argued routes, black-holed frustration,

Time talks till all put right

 

Subtle strokes, caressed by cue,

Solitary salutations

Solar shift in ideation

Copernican dark to light

  1. I particularly love the way you used words that suggest the connection between time and the universe. Even in this passage:

    “Movement in the galaxies

    Parallels in consternation

    Argued routes, black-holed frustration

    ConSTERNation uses a root for stars.” (emphasis mine)

    Brilliant, as usual.
