    Time is stillness, Time is motion

    Time is our utmost sacred notion

    Through Time's clouds we see what is

    What was, what will be, and Time's special kiss

    We are all part of Time and are waiting to know

    What the Ages of past are partial to show

    For every energy and every hour

    Grows and unfolds itself like a flower

    And men and women discover each other

    Their love for their friends

    And one for another

    Children are born in love and in scorn

    They love us in wonder though some are forlorn

    We love them and nurture that which they are

    Until they grow up to be like a star

    They outshine all the others and come into their own

    And we love them and hug them and give them a home

    Soon they replace us like a new field of grass

    Fertilized by our love and all that which lasts

    They give us our hope as we grow to old age

    That true good can be found in earning Time's wage

    When they grow older they start it again

    And Time gives them wisdom and comforts their kin

    Time is Love to all those who might listen

    To Time's ebbing tide and evanescing glisten

    It goes and it comes and renews what we are

    It is there in our peace and there in our war

    Time is Love

      I've always thought that time was just a figment of the human imagination... big_smile

    Sometimes (sic!) I get an impression that time is The God. Not the Christian one, of course smile

    Considering notion that The God is Love - here you go, time is love! smile

      I think God is the most loaded word in history.

      I would prefer to refer to what you are talking about as a form of wisdom that just IS, without any intelligent function that imparts itself into us because we are a part of it and vice versa.

      Time that is.

      I wouldn't worship it, I wouldn't call it spiritual and I sure wouldn't call it God.

      I would say that I feel that Time is a non intelligent Love expression emanating from that part of the universe which is not comprised of me and you and "us" (humans). 

      We reciprocate this love through reflecting on Time itself.

      This is of course how I "feel" about these things, I certainly would not "preach" them.

      Also, the definition of Love I am obviously operating under during this poem is highly unconventional, (hence the intellectual incoherence).  I would say it is my own definition, and only of one type of Love.

      As these are feelings I would not assign them objective intellectual validity (or even so much as claim to call these statements intellectually coherent), I would say it is subjective and would not exist for all people.  In fact it only exists for me emotionally, and it's metaphorical purpose is to liberate me emotionally. 

      These feelings do exist in me and this is how I make sense of them, through poetry.

      Evidently others have gotten something from my poetry, in which case I inadvertently "helped" perhaps?

    Sure you did. Every time we do something from heart we help others smile
