Wednesday, 11/26 - "ETERNITY"

"ETERNITY"


(FIRST - a short P.S. to yesterday's blog.)
P.S. #1 - Upon first getting sober, I had only one basket. It was the alcoholic basket and it was full of drinking, recovering from being drunk, drinking again, recovering, etc. etc. with a whole lot of fear, remorse, and guilt sprinkled in.
P.S. #2 - The eggs in that one basket were all "putrefying"


Now - on to a hopefully lighter, happier, more spiritual/philosophical note.
Another poem.


ETERNITY
The eons of time cascade by
The centuries pass in parade

The years step one into one

And why do I feel entwined?


The months with their seasons spring forth

Into weeks with their days marching forth
Leading irresistibly onward
To everywhere - nowhere at all


And the hours sweep endlessly by

Ticked off by the seconds so brief

And between are the flickers of eye blinks

Into nothing and nothing at all

Yet in that bare blink of the lid

Mirrored there in its' translucent skin

Arrayed out are the eons of time

And I know that I "am" so entwined

Hey, Prayer Girl...why didn't you tell me you're a poet (poetess?). Well, we've only been married for 18 years! Maybe you were saving it for 20

That is beautiful!

Beautiful!

I just wanted to pop on and say a quick thank you to you for being a part of the fellowship with me. I'm so grateful to have gained strength and love through you and Mr-aroni!

You have both become beloved parts of my day and I carry you and the fellowship with me and hope I represent it well when I go to make these amends to my brother and parents.

Thanks again for the beauty and joy you bring to my day!

Happy thanksgiving!

Peace, love and joy that surpasses all understanding be with you!

That's a wonderful poem. Time goes by so fast and the hours do sweep endlessly by. But like you said it all leads to our being entwined with the universe. And it leads to an everlasting place where time doesn't matter.

Wonderful poem. It sort of made me sad that I had robbed time of its outcome for many years. Now I wonder if I'm trying to grab it back.
