mythology — vignette no. 1       [boomerang]

Time had a whim to stop!   but had simply forgotten how!
the trees had grown more cautions     they declined to say

the birds?   they'd all flown south   (a wind had whispered "sough!")
well & as for the rivers     still they pretended to   wend their way!

it became (in fine)  a non-event!   (though an allmost-was)
time gradually drained itself in thought     could this allow

these pellucid beings   to feel some   lift   of a blissful buzz?
had time   really hankered to stop?     but failed to remember how?

Time is such a motif in your writing. Have you ever figured out why or is it just fun? By the way, Happy New Year!
