In a clockless world
all life is an approximation
and clear boundaries evaporate
like the mist off a morning pond.
In that world this moment
seeps into the next,
night becomes day,
only to return again.
The Buddha knew this
for in his clockless world
all that existed
was this moment
an instant that was,
as well, eternity.

One thought on “WHEN OR IF

  1. A clockless time might remove us from the frenetic frenzy of city existence and settle our minds or delve us deeper into the chaos that sometimes ensues today. A very thought provoking poem. I like your work.
