Time Has Come Today

time won't let me cosmic s

You can sometimes combine the beginning with the end.  But take care. The interplay must never be rippled—look for translucence, a changing density that mirrors the journey of the stars.  Listen, then turn around.  Threaded into the horizon you will sometimes find the edges.  Two of nothing will show you the way.

The clock invited me into its worn house, where twice a day there was a meeting place that balanced on the verge of departure.  Forward or backward?  I became lost in the movement, spinning around into all directions, endlessly lost inside each new location.

If I had found the common denominator…if I had been able to reconfigure what was left behind…if I could have traveled in tandem with the shadows…but if is not when.  It is over, said and done.

It was a time and there was never enough of it.

For Prosery Monday at dVerse, Merril gave us a quote from Allison Adelle Hedge Coke: when it is over said and done/it was a time/and there was never enough of it.  I ended up writing with a stream of consciousness hangover.

For my art, I took an old collage and superimposed it on a newish painting in Photoshop.  As soon as I read the quote I thought immediately of this song.

  1. A fabulous collage, Kerfe, and an amazing piece of prose. I especially love the clock and its invitation into its worn house, ‘where twice a day there was a meeting place that balanced on the verge of departure.’ What a metaphor for life and decisions!

    1. Thanks Merril. I can’t see me writing longer prose, but perhaps it will inspire someone to explore more. I did a lot of these intricate collage mandalas way back when. I happened to have a photo of this one, but where they are in reality is a mystery.

  2. A most stunning collage and prose piece! I especially like; “Threaded into the horizon you will sometimes find the edges. Two of nothing will show you the way.”💝
