years of tears
moments of resentment
cannot invade a space
long disregarded by time…
not when you have moved on

years of fear
moments of despair
space within
breaks the rhythm 
but the time flows

and it flows to another victim
who is ignorant of time’s laws
precise though subtle
conqueress of memories
womb of hope


This post is the result of a fine interaction on Twitter between myself and Ahmad Javed.

I thank him for this wonderful inspiration

    Thank you for this poem which makes clear that we move, and find our being in, time.

    All good wishes,



I would love to have your thoughts
