Time Spirals

Life Circles, M. Mair, Original art

Life Circles, Margaret Mair, Original art

We have named these
Seconds and minutes,
Hours and days,
Months and years,
Decades, centuries,
Eras and eons.
Now they spiral
Endlessly around us,
A moving circle
Wherein we write
Our little histories.

Our lives cover
Such a tiny span
Of this time’s
Endless coil
And yet
We hold the future
In our selves:
In our understanding,
In our doing,
In our children
And all we teach them.

We release
Our beloved young
To travel
Their own path
Spiraling upward
Beyond the limits
Of our dreams,
Praying only
That our foundation
Holds strong so
They can rise
Beyond our grasp
Into a world
We shall never see.

May that world
Of time created,
Of earth and air
And fire and desire
Be one they can
Live well in.
