The hour glass measures
infinite space, when time
is in doldrums, and clock
stops ticking. The clock
of ancient times lies wasted
in sands. The waves of seas
measure the immeasurable.
Once upon a time man wrote,
hunted and made homes. Wrote
time on feverish sands. The hour glass
measured history and ticking of time
minute by minute, second by second,
and out of supernal time gods and goddesses
rode on chariot horses, with sounds of neighing.
Out of the caves of time, the gods drew elixir
from firmaments of hope. Time.
