Time Traveller


I am yesterday,
A genetic map
The living proof
Of survival

I am today,
A blank diskette
On which I burn
My story

I am tomorrow,
A compass pointing
To human godhood
Or extinction

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
