DOES TIME FLOW?

 

by

 

Minakshi Watts

 

 

 

Does Time flow, or do we flow

 

Through time ?

 

Is life a circle of winds, weaving and

 

Waving bright, like

 

The Northern Lights?

 

 

Words bound in rhymes and plots, spill

 

To free the mind

 

We live in aviaries, full and nill..

 

Captors and spectators

 

All inter-twined.

 

 

Does Time flow through us, or do we flow

 

Through Time?

 

Stars mingle to refresh the path,

 

Or, don’t they,

 

Einstein  ?

 

 

Do edges of the universe sing

 

With bells and cymbals

 

Divine?

 

Does Time flow, or do we flow

 

Through Time ?

 

 

Is Here and Now a bend in time per hour ;

 

From where we re-enter,

 

Riding on new perceptions

 

Defying rhyme and

 

Reason ?

 

 

Does Time flow, or do we flow

 

Through time ?

 

Does Time move on,

 

Or coil up somewhere,

 

Darkly serpentine?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MINAKSHI WATTS shares...

 

Minakshi Watts says she has been been writing for as long as she can remember. Her father was the one to encourage her during  childhood, typing out her little poems and sending them to national dailies.  Says Minakshi, "My first published poem was at the age of ten. Now I notice that my poems and paintings are becoming reflections of each other. If I can't find the words for something, I paint it and vice-versa. Not always to my satisfaction!"

Motivation...

"Does Time Flow was written after I had been reading up on Einstein's theory of the Relativity of time. It is also a way of questioning our existence in this vast universe; our smallness as compared to the huge mystery of life and time."  minnie.1012@ yahoo.com in is her email.
