It is the clock that
counts the moment —

the sum of all
clocks ticking
in circles
spiraling
in an air
of timelessness
is eternity.

 — kenne

It is time to explain myself—let us stand up.
What is known I strip away,
I launch all men and women forward with me into the Unknown.
The clock indicates the moment—but what does eternity indicate?
We have thus far exhausted trillions of winters and summers,
There are trillions ahead, and trillions ahead of them.
Births have brought us richness and variety,
And other births will bring us richness and variety.
I do not call one greater and one smaller,
That which fills its period and place is equal to any.


— from Song of Myself by Walt Whitman
