Expressions of Time

“Forever — is composed of Nows —”    

—Emily Dickinson

Time was created by God

Who lives outside of our

linear existence — take

a moment and imagine

eternity: no beginning, no

end, no minutes or hours,

no way of clocking, no pace

of before or after — just

existence unframed.

We can’t comprehend this

because we are bound

by the second hand,

our physical days numbered,

flesh has its conception

and death.  One day 

we will be different, the breath

that leaves flesh is spirit

and will return to a new body

living without end, unbound

within God’s limitlessness.
