Subject(s): God; Time


God counts time not by minutes nor by days,
The years, to Him, are but the markings on a dial,
'Round which we circle, madly spinning,
Like futile second hands. Our very haste betrays
Our fear of time. And all the while,
His pointing hand moves slowly in an arc
So vast, its end and its beginning
Alike are lost in deep impenetrable dark
Of Past and Future. And our tick-tick-tock
But marks the silence of God's timeless clock.
