Where does time go

Where does time go

does it go, is our perception askew?
What if time just is? Always there.
Moving like the clouds, like the waves

Being always time, sky and sea.

What about us? Are we just living linear
or are we fluent too?
Always part of the Stars, the Universe, Earth,
living all the time.

Don’t let us limit ourselves with numbers and dates.

Live in peaceful meditation or stormy dance
in Love, always in Love.

With tears when they come and smiles of a child.

      • What if time is just there … for me it means it doesn’t come and go anywhere πŸ˜‡
        It is a screen on which our life events happen and it gives the appearance of moving, of going 😊

        Time as we know it, is important as a frame of reference and it would be linear 😊

    • Thank you, Balroop, for your lovely comment. I am so glad you agree that
      β€˜…time is. Always there. β€˜
      I guess our experiences in life changes the way we see things. 😊.

    • Andrea, thank you for your wonderful comment. I do agree with all you
      say and often feel we are conflicted with the word time.
      It is a mysterious thing even though we appreciate the need for appointments and every day functioning of the modern world.

    • Your comment is absolutely wonderful, Curt. A million years ago you were part of a 🌟. You have opened up the space I was aiming at. Could we all be stardust? Vast empty space make me feel like floating.
      Thank you Curt .

      • It’s the stuff we are made of Miriam, That’s for sure. πŸ™‚ Even now, the quarks in our bodies are responding to quarks zillions of miles away. Makes me feel quirky. Grin. –Curt

    • Thank you , Kate. Yes, too often we get tied to clock time.
      We need this for a modern society to work. But don’t let us forget real time,
      where we can just be and flow. πŸ€—.

  1. Miriam, a beautiful and deeply thought-provoking poem! We all seem intent on reigning in the impossible, time! Putting parameters on something that just is, always has been and will be, which as been part of us since the very beginning.

    From the infinity to time your bring us to the essence of our being here on Earth,

    β€˜in Love, always in Love’

    Let love lead the way as we learn to be, letting time be as we live and feel all moments to the core! Xx ❀️

  2. Dear Annika, thank you for your wonderful comment. So clearly you point out that time has been with us from beginning and our attempts to reign it in within a small frame work often leads to misery.
    I quote your lovely passage β€œ Let love lead the way as we learn to be, letting time be as we live and feel all moments to the core! β€œ
    So true.

    Having said that, clock time is necessary in both working life and other appointments as we function on more than one level. As long as we are aware and clock does not rule us. πŸ’•πŸŒ»

  3. This is exceptionally beautiful, comforting, and exciting at the same time! It’s so full of possibilities! “Always part of the Stars, the Universe, Earth, living all the time,” makes me feel like dancing with the stars, swirling in a nebula, soaring over the earth – maybe 30 years or so from now.

    • JoAnna, your comment is so sparkling and happy, it takes my breath away.
      It is early morning here and I feel very convinced we are part of it all .
      Swirling in a nebula, dancing with the stars. Also finding beauty and
      joy on this dear planet of ours.
      Let our souls light up.

      Thank you JoAnna πŸ’•πŸŒŸ.

  4. This is beautiful, Miriam!
    I think the time is always there, because it is us humans that pass. For a long time I had a quote on my bulletin board that I’ve always thought about and that has helped me manage my time better: “It’s not too little time that we have, it’s too much time that we have not use.”
    (Quote from Lucius Annaeus Seneca)
    Miriam, I wish you all the best!
    Greetings from the beautiful Rhine-Highlands / Germany…🌸🌸

  5. Rosie, your deep and beautiful comment makes me feel we share many thoughts. I like your Seneca Quote. Time is a word we use a lot so the question will arise.
    Rosie from Rhine-Highlands, I am glad having you here and welcome you warmly.

    • Thanks, Isha. It is difficult in this particular poem to say where inspiration came from as it seems more of a juxtaposition of thoughts, comments, quotes, experiences. A feeling that time just is there. Calmly.
