no Time

Lillian here, delighted to be hosting dVerse again!

Out for coffee with friends the other day, I was asked about my recent 40-day trip to Singapore, Bali, Australia and New Zealand. My response? We had the time of our lives!
That got me to thinking about the word time.

As one website* states: “Time is something we deal with every day, and something that everyone thinks they understand. However a compact and robust definition of time has proved to be remarkably tricky and elusive. . . time has many aspects and appears to represent different things to different people in different circumstances.

For today’s poetics: write a poem that includes the word “time” and/or a poem about a particular “time” etched in your memory.

  1. LOVE the play with words here and the deconstruction of the common phrase.
    Also like the added thought…places exist outside of time…I’d like to find those 🙂

    1. I have a dram beside me and it’ll fuel a few comment visits before I disappear into the no time zone 😉
      Drumming takes me to place where time stops…or at least the measure of it does.

    1. Hi Victoria. I missed this lovely comment. As i reply time has moved…or maybe we have. Anyways here in the timeless zone there will be a moment when you are indeed wearing a hat…so thanks. 😉
