This post is in reply to "mariee66" post "Where does time go ?"  Again it is a scientists approach at an answer .


*
When  is a subtler question it may seem
She drowns in the sensesí turbulent stream

*

When covets the promise of a future event,
or the knowledge of a long ago dead past,
both being from our senses, this moment absent,
but thoughts canít grasp This momentís present,
as the above line in the rhyme is already in a casket

So, When does Father Time spend his leisurely moments ?

Thereís still that illusive sensation of the inner clock
It is an illusion resulting from the Where flock
which is the incessant motion of the stock,
never arriving at a portís dock

The stock are moving objects
that are nothing but thoughts
in neurons that arc and spark

Einstein knew of this questions game,
so he invented the famous space-time
where both are treated as the same

Accordingly, time is the lead singer in a quartet band
singing songs, but never alone, on the music stand,
senses being an audience with clapping hands
seeing objects, in the rhythm, twirl and dance

The illusion of time is shattered for the parted twin
boarding a spacecraft in the Relativistic Thought Plane

Now you know that When is a  Where,
one is  a h**l*t, the other is a wh*r*

If youíve been attentive to my tongueís strife
will you still ask yourself ;
"When will my next check arrive ?"

HMM...

My poem was meant to be sad and thought provoking~

I wrote it when I learned of my mother's illness...

She has since passed away~

Thank you for your reply.. I do appreciate it~

I guess I know *Where* now~  )

Marie,


Again my training jumps in...

Logical..always logical I am
If I get enough reprimands
maybe I'll understand !
