Following the Seconds

Following the seconds that cascade into minutes and
drip into a flood of hours
You will find that time is an illusion of the Grandest scale
Fooling all who imagine they perceive her,
she answers to no-one and pays no dues

Marching ever onwards to the beat of her own drumming
Standing still but appearing to progress constantly
into a new time and a new age
An age when nothing will be exactly as it was before
Folding in upon itself more than it stretches out
in linear form
Does time move forward or progressively
implode upon itself eternally?

So we recount the days we have spent in countless ways
Remembering days and events that filled them
Where we were, with who and doing what?
I remember that Memory is the proof of Eternity
Think of anything past and there it is,
immediately in view of the mind’s eye
The feeling, emotion or even the sense
of what it felt like is standing before you
Reach out to touch it and experience it anew
Different than ever remembered but yet,
somehow, exactly unchanged, static

Carbon copies of times long passed away
Fresh recreations of seconds that we were
the same as always, yet never again shall be

Artist's Description

The feelings that are evoked when we remember past events in our lives. Our attitudes and perceptions change as we age and our memories of the same event in our past can often be transformed and transfigured at different stages of life.

Comments are very welcome ! Feedback is a great teacher for all of us.
