Star – yesterday today – and yet –
tomorrow. Time expands – one becomes
a multitude. And yet – alone: a sun
in blue. A point – timeless – light – bright
and clear. Yesterday my forefathers
saw – I see today – my children’s children
witnessed the same – for time in circles
bends. Mary said: where am I? – looking
at the sea – a single boat – sunlit.
I answered – like the boat – an unknown
place. She, on the veranda, half shadowed –
asked again – where am I? Is this our place –
lit by a star? A circle’s centre. A light-filled
moment – before and after – unknown.
