World spins -
her head spins.
She take pictures -
thousands of pictures -
maybe she has taken
stars in universes -
universes in galaxies -
in other dimensions
other universes
other galaxies.
The room spins.

Photographs are magic -
capturing a moment -
Yet, the
world goes on.
Linear time -
circular time.
Noone knows.
The picture is frozen.
This is magical.

She has frozen years of moments,
and what of video and film? -
frozen moving moments
with sound and depth and
what of that ? -
a moving frozen in time experience -
Timelessness as
the rest of the world moves along -
inches along -
in lines or circles or both -
who knows ?

She thinks about wormholes -
about traveling into time -
backwards or forwards -
linear or circular -
who knows ??

The great minds -
poets and the physicists,
argue, debate,
write, create words

What is that ??
Nothingness -
everything -
things to come -
things that were -
all and nothing -
Is it deep or shallow?
or stagnant?
who knows ?

The rivers flow
into seas and oceans.
We flow
with the circle of life -
timeless experiences.
When the clock stops,
does time go faster ?

She walks
and thinks.
Her head aches.
The beauty of the park
in sun shining winter days
is overwhelming.
She snaps a few pictures.
Timelessness is ineffable -
unexplainable -
moments to treasure.

She walks home -
daily routine -
into her little home,
into her small world...
