Now

Time is a strange concept —

a dimension, a progression,

a measurement, a spell,

the reason we age.

When we count minutes,

it flees or stands still; 

when we forget the clock, 

it loses meaning until a chime 

or falling shadow forces us 

back to our tick tock existence.

Time is temporal, for the flesh;

it cannot exist in the eternal

life to come — the very definition

of forever removes the anchors

of before and after; there will be

only the present and always together,

without distinction.  

God created time as a frame

for our linear journey here —

to accommodate our biometrics,

to give us seasons, to allow

us a history from “the beginning,”

but we will meet Him outside

of time’s boundaries when He

takes us into an endless,

continually-new 

now.
