Time

Time plods
ever onwards

trodding down plants
and earth
and man.


It slides by

in subtle sensuous swirls
swallowing day

and night
and hills
and trees. 


Deep beneath
the crust of time

lie the secret sacred sciences
of uncounted cultures.

Shrouded in its’ deep shadows

is all that was
and ever will be. 


The key it holds

safely stored
in seven separate sanctuaries 

well hidden in walls 

and weaving waysides 

in spires of sleek shining silver 

or benevolently bent Buddhas. 


To ply that prized possession

is to uncover untold usheries

of nameless knowledge.
