Fay Slimm.




Wise eternity opts to wink 
at blind earthling opinion              
that accepting Now's position             
as stopwatch has no significance.                                

Surrender is thought to be weak
and that years must have meaning. 


Yet infinity favours order
as each single minute walks                      
with timeless precision toward         
proving human perception warped.

Valuing moments as entrance 
to Nowness opens non-earthly
doors to where love is permanent  
and all else temporarily relevant.

  • Comment from author about the poem: Playing with words and thoughts again -- hope you enjoy the result. P.S. have tried unsuccessfully to realign this piece but gave up in the end - -hence the strange shapes and sizes.

    Play on Fay, play on – and please give eternity, infinity and now another outing sometime. They are always welcome buzzing around my head – provided they don’t stay too long…..

      Each to their own Dave and if you kindly allow that buzzing around of my view of things well that alone deserves a further big thank you for your visit and read.

        Ha .. and there's me thinking mistress Fay has invented a new perceptual tool to determine amongst other things alignment and spatial judgement .... one can never be sure these days except for the certainty that she will never fail to deliver when it comes to the quality of her bespoke creations ..x

        • Fay Slimm.

          Ha - well I'm glad you had a peek at my more than frustration in being unable to alter the spacing -- strange cos it has never happened before........... any road up Nev here's many thank yous for reading through my love of ways to describe Perception..............x

          Even the greatest shall know temporary relevance in their everyday now-ness'. Though our history books record something different. but time, what is it, where does it go. Will they ever invent time travel or is that what some of the UFO's are, visitors from the future... who knows?
          What a provokative can of worms you've opened today Fay.

          • Fay Slimm.

            Ah - - thanks dear D,. - - I love opening cans to see word-worms being examined with fervour by kind readers - - and you are by no means an exception to that my friend. Glad you found the thoughts provoking
