“Time is an Illusion.” Albert Einstein

Defeating Time

When you slow down you find your rhythm
no longer captive to the leer of the clock,
imagine time as to feeling, as to touch,
taste, to drink time, to laugh and cry time,
to experience time as the presence of a
loved one or the caress of a lover, a sip of 
fine wine, or to observe the changing sky,
to sit and imbibe the elements of any one 
day or the intimacy of friendships defeats 
the one who steals soul.

  3. Your poem brought back good memories of defeating time when I was growing up. My family had a camp with no electricity off a remote logging road in the woods. For the month of August, we all lived by the sun. No job, no school, no clocks. It was glorious!
