Yes, time stretches and contracts as well, the most flexible, that science calls relative, a lovely haiku that highlights these facts.

This format is the finest of all. A conventional haiku with conviction of time in retrospection!

This is our thinking that sometimes makes time a sprinting steed and sometimes a brooding sage. But again it's time that changes our thinking! Valsa you have selected a very interesting topic A lovely philosophic write.
