~ Life Through Time Reflected ~

~ Life Through Time Reflected ~

Time writes no wrinkles, endless or sublime
Calm or convulsed as if it were comprised
Of the idea of eternity as if it were a child
Born of the naivete' that most do despise
Sending time on the long hunt for learning of life...

Life paints the seasons, spring to winter
Like building a home with wood that splinters
Like in the minds of men who made the 3-D printer
Confusing the child on his hunt through life's filter
Time writes no wrinkles but allows for free-thinkers...

It is within that freedom where life is projected
Upon the great movie screen of the minds-eye reflected
Where memories interwoven with timeΒ are perfected
And eventually manifest as History, then protected
By ultimate truth, and carefully connected...

Wow, this is such a beautifully flowing piece that engages the readers mind.. I was led to re-read and re-read..just to catch more and more. It's amazing how you can weave such depth within your lines. I got from this the feeling of lives events connecting and we can find the same rules shine through different circumstances (when we compare the way life works). When we realise our minds are the ones that make our history and our future, a new world opens. In the end, one thing that's common through these lines and in all life on earth is.. time. It makes up everything, when we look back we can weave it all together.. (I might be way off though, I apologise if I interpreted it wrong). This truly made my brain crack and I so live for that. I love it!! πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½

This is an awesome write, T.....I love how you started this with a few creative verses a few days ago, and then they just all of a sudden came together for you today to finish and post....Life through time shows how humanity in some ways never changes, but in other ways how we learn and add to what is already presented....creating a flow of evolving into something new....It is important to protect the truth in history so that the future generations can perfect what is presented.Β  Individually, we all have something to add to memories and reflection as a part of this world...It is really a humbling and privileged position to be human.Β  I love everything about this poem...from its theme, flow, crafty wording, rhyme, alliteration, etc.....all so well thought out.Β  You keep me challenged to improve my own work.Β  Lots of love, respect, and kisses thrown in for good measure to show you how proud I am of you. xo ;)
