Always Now

Night’s comforting dark surrounds
draws me into tides of joy.

No matter how grand its sweep of hands
time does not reveal all.

Separation creates longing
(behind closed eyes)
silent images pass by
and soon showers, cascade
Free-falling from a rain of light
seep into my being to
wash me clean of woes.

I understand its language
(this soothing phenomena)
present, complete.
Time is always, now.

  1. Time is always now, until it’s not. It’s part of form and curves through space. Time is not just a clock, it moves from then to now-a constant tick/tock but moving ahead is probably just a lie, unless it’s not (not here but out there in space). Time is tied to all I do. It is a constant in my poetry. It is the unseen, seen in every piece of art.

  2. Oh yes, so very true. Time does not reveal all; and time is ALWAYS now. Profound in its simplicity, Daydreamer.

  3. I enjoyed your words as i could relate with it so much…
    your lines were beautiful…

    ‘Separation creates longing
    (behind closed eyes)
    silent images pass by’

    … and in the end what you said is so true… we dont know how to live in this now.. we keep on living either in past or future…

    Thanks for sharing ….

  4. Time is always now…nice. I love the Ancient Egyptian idea that there is only now and forever. This poem makes me think of that. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Quite a lovely, yet sad piece. Tears are cleansing and enjoying the time you have now or any given moment is special, especially when you’ve shared and realize today is a present you give yourself.

  6. love this. this is an issue i deal with constantly.

    “No matter how grand its sweep of hands
    time does not reveal all.”

    it reveals so little, just the now. that is all.

  7. You really have some amazing lines in this piece. Really like it a lot. language as a soothing phenomena-that stays with me, couldn’t agree more and your opening set of lines really sets the mood and tone for the piece. Great job, thanks

  8. time is always now…i tend to forget sometimes and live in the past or the future…and miss the serenity and joy of the moment..have to remind me constantly…so thanks for reminding me again..enjoyed your the use of brackets

  9. I guess the past is the past and the future comes fast, since time is vast it’s always now and will never last, your verse made me get all timely..haha
