Indivisible Fractions

Indivisible Fractions

Now .. is that ever shifting point in time

when past and future subdivide

Indivisible and abstract, yet only a moment away

    Would that be 'This moment in time', or 'That moment in time', or 'That moment just gone' or 'That moment not here yet'?
    I'm reduced to a jibbering wreck. Partly due to this poem. Partly due to that gal I did meet! heehee.

      I am writing this looking to the future but just realise i started in the past. So how can i catch up with myself. I'm unsure whether my opening gambit there has a doppler effect built in backwards or it's red shift turned blue?

      Captains yule log, stardate twenny too,one,twenny one. I am warped and suffering photon torpedo anal discomfature.

      Needless to say you thoroughly confused me on a day when i was hoping to watch faeries dance.

        of those illusive intangibles
        you pen...
        of past 'what if's'
        my mind
        begrudgingly: attends...
        a smart format for delivery
        you've chosen, ever subtle
        even when versed so accessible

          Hark the future
          The present’s so fast
          By the time you say it
          It’s in the past

          Well done Neville

            Beguiling as ever these transient fractions of time - - - wonder where this moment went as I was typing with intent to find answers to mystify thee...... great read Nev and well received by many in front and behind my indecipherable words.......... x

              Every second is consigned to the past as soon as it arrives. The future lies before us, but our entire lives are lived in the past. Such is life. A thought-provoking, brain-wracking poem, Neville!

                ................ How extraordinarily kind you were, Robert, the moment you just hit send .. cheers .. Neville

                Is this to be my Destiny, my one true way, Master?
                Have you bestowed upon me the key which grants escape from these polarities and the attainment of enlightenment?
                Blessings to thee, O Lord………

                  ... I would be very careful what you allow to be put in your rose hip syrup from now on ...

                  Each moment in our time is so important, enjoy each one because s soon as they arrive they go.

                      As my thoughts are forming, the future blends into present, and now it's all in the past, and all it took was indivisible fractions of time.

                      Indubitably so!!!!!!

                      • Neville

                        Oh the mind is a fragile instrument
                        The here and now is what matters
                        The past made us, we must not lament
                        leave the past in its tatters
                        Let go of the monsters that the eyes invent
