Time - Poem by Eva Beylich

Endless seems the time
of the sundial on the
hot, delapidated wall.
The lizard lies lazily
under the arch
of the cloister
flooded with light.
For you it gets cool
in the old ruins.
The graves of the monks
show - the clock has struck.
Hasty footsteps leave
the past in order to
flee into the limited future.

    Eva, your poem conjures up a curious set of images that truly influences one's concept of time: endless and mindless in its pursuits and its insistence, and ever elusive as it stands watch over History’s depiction of the past and Creation’s design of a future wholly beyond the limits of our imagination. Thank you, Eva and best wishes for success in all your endeavors. [8.0] (Report) Reply
