Doubtlessness

Knowing is doubtlessness
in times of plenty
but when
all
is
slipping
away
we no longer know
with certainty
what will come
as well as
what is now but fading

Time as a concept of the mind

For a moment I'll consider a Creator-less universe, and in that universe nothing has a relationship to anything else. Each change (and all is ongoing change) transpires locally -- microscopically locally, subatomic locally -- interactions without past or future. A comet has not an orbit, a planet not a revolution, a star neither a birth nor death. For without an intelligence, be it large (God) or small (thinking lifeforms), all takes place in the present, for it is a mind (big or small) that connects the dots, that creates past and future, that conjures an ongoing reality with spinning objects and revolutions, of objects and minds. Does mind (large or little) too create time?

God of creations

I, the Creator, look down
onto my creations
but alas
that last one
the only one
that knows
ME
thinks my 
creations
less than
their God-given
imaginations
