Time And Eternity

It is to walk

For some period of time

As if bathed in Eternity,

No matter how long

Nor when in history,

But to live and love

In a way that spokes

Into the inner hub

Of the Universe;

Then the length of time

Of life on earth

Is unmeasurable;

Short or long,

Now or then,

It is Infinite,

In Eternity.
