Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Time Travel

on March 9, 2015

Today I am packing, long list in hand of things to remember.
Tomorrow I embark on a journey long planned for. Time to get organized.
Yesterday was clock-changing day. Now we get in the morning one hour more.
The calendar announces that in ten days it will be Spring. I wonder why all the fuss.

Days, hours and time we humans invented
To keep track of motions ebbing and flowing
That chart our impressions that somewhere is forward
And another-where is backward. We think we’re in charge.

Soon I’ll be sitting on a veranda where a volcano takes center stage.
Not far is a river where crocodiles live. Bright birds flash their feathers
In tropical splendor.The glittering beaches beside ancient waters beckon to me.
Here is time kept not with clocks or with calendars. Endless todays promise life is free.

  1. Sounds like somewhere lovely is going to be visited. xxx Kathy.

  2. Have a great trip! And when you return, I hope we’ll see wonderful photos. We’re running away to the farm this week – no volcanoes, no sandy shores, just lots of tallgrass prairie six miles from the nearest paved road. Beach would be nice, but prairie? It’s good too.
    Have a wonderful time.

      Thanks, Kate. The Ghanaian saying proved true more than one time on my trip. When things settle down after a wonderful, very strenuous trip I’ll write stories.

  6. Hope you are well Viv and looking forward to your return . Blessings Kathy xxx
