Time exists in testimonials encased and framed. 
Each singularity proud and erect standing beside 
and supported by a lone consort. 
When recalled and rendered within, 
No pause is seen nor heard, except 
when played in very slow motion. 
From beginning to end we discern infinity
and see the process as one motion never completed.
In a blink of an eye, eternity exists.
The story gets told in the afterglow; 
lingering as ripened fruit on an old tree. 
Revealing time as ringed markers; remnants
of what was and will never be again. 
A collection of the Creator's intent.

A sweeper follows your every vector
locked in folds of a played out sector
As procreator, with no beginning and no end 
that all before cannot amend.
Thy sly requiem nestled beneath the sun
appears to gloat in what's begun
as ancient rhyme created by design
and recorded in an eternal shrine.

What is Time and Space?
Hard to describe in human terms.
When I think about life
from beginning to end,
it seems implausible to even
contemplate but like a fool,
I try.

    Such a huge concept. Nicely thought out and represented. Well done.

    Allen, in which ever way I view this poem, the concept of time... has no beginning nor end. I like to think TIME has no direction at all. Your a brainy right... this... Linda

    A perfection depiction of time, especially the "encased and framed" stanza. Ultimately, the end of our time will be incased or framed; good, bad, or indifferent, as they say. Awesome write. Ralph Sergi
