Space Time Continuum

Updated on December 1, 2011

The Milky Way


Does the Space-time continuum really exist?

I have no idea.

My mind struggles with the concept.

Are space and duration truly the same thing?

Does it really matter?

The relativity of dimensions by reference to consciousness.

Pure goobledlygook?

Or does it explain the chasm than can exist when standing side by side?

Or the intimacy shared when miles apart?

Perhaps there is a Special Relativity of Relationships

for Stephen Hawking to unravel.

I'm very new to the world of poetry and this is my sixth poem. As you can probably tell I'm experimenting with the poetry that I'm writing, trying to do something a little different each time.

This piece was created around the word chasm and a comment I left on PDXKaroakeGuy's hub Foreign . His poem made me think about how physical closeness is not connected to the closeness of a relationship.

I wanted it to be a thought provoking poem rather than an emotional one.

I found the comment from Frederick Buechner below which I felt complimented the point that I am trying to make.

You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you.

Frederick Buechner

      Hi Kenneth

      So pleased that you approve. The poem developed in a rather strange way compared to the others I've written. I'm so sorry to hear that you're not well and hope you have a lovely Christmas too. God bless you.

      Amazing hub, Amber! Loved it to a point of soaking up every word. Voted up and away. It was that good. And YOU are that talented. I LOVE this subject. Could listen or talk on it all day. Im sorry I havent been here more often, my health isnt good and I was working on some things that needed my attention. I DO value and thank you for following me. I want to come back soon and read more of these hubs. Amber, have a great Christmas and be kind to yourself.////KENNETH
