Life continues,
reshaping itself,
revealing magic,
creating, unraveling

Thoughts run wild.
Keeping track seems
an impossible task.
Yesterdays, todays,
tomorrows merge.

Today became yesterday.
Tomorrow became today.
Yesterday reappears
as a memory.
Now, When and Then
have become bookmarks

as well as the
physical places
and spaces
we now
