The glass of metered intention
Sandy hourglass of the fourth dimension
Time is it’s own starter, bejeweled sweeper
Stopwatch hands and checkered flag waver.
Galaxy historian to cosmic stars
The immortal gatekeeper,
The wisdom and witness of Eden.
Tides and the seasons plan in its garden
Galaxies are oblivious to it; it does not waver
Speed, light, distance the universe’s calculator
Unseen kingdom’s measured treasure
Millennia in every hour.
