Treasure Island

Bullion Grey

(12/28/1960 / Earth)


Since Time doesn't exist, you can't waste it.
Time can never be 'lost'.
Time can't be saved.
We can't 'look for Time'.
None can 'find more Time.'
We cannot 'make up Time'.
Time can't be 'burned', 'compacted' 'slowed' or 'stretched'.
Time can't be stopped or 'stand still', or be 'held up'.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Time seems like a constructed utility based on memory (past) , observation (present) , and imagination (future) through the faculties of Perception.

In fact, even 'now' doesn't exist. We see & experience everything in the brief past mathematically. It is said Light travels 186,000 miles every second. If we are about 3 feet apart of each other, it means it takes 250,000th of a second for Light to travel from each of us to the other. Which means we see each other slightly from the past. Thus 'now'has never existed. So we're left with only past, which exists only in memory and the future which exists only in imagination. Both being 100% unreliable.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
