Concept of Time

A fabric of thought A state of the unknown A woven measurement called time Alway moving forward toward infinity No boundries, no mass,no form, only the ticking of the clock Or the rising and setting of the sun or light and darkness Makes us aware of change Silently, it moves throughout the universe Constant, steady, unseen, an unknown entity A concept calculated by man A fragment called time.

Wow, this had a deep philisophical message to this, too--not only a poem. Time is something to be pondered, but how elusive it is to us. You captured it very well, however. Regards, Sara:)

I once got into a crazy conversation about what exactly is time anyway. It made me more confused than ever. : ) You captured what it to us so well. A most thought provoking write. Very well written. Love, Shar

A complexly easy poem. You really capturd all of the elements that make up time. It flows very easily off the page and really captures something that cannot be captured. Excellent work. Nice to read you again Phyllis. My best, Charlie
