Fecund past

.

Months move

with a peculiar liquid sound

as they flow along,

glaciers of time

sliding along the inclines

of perceived reality.

.

Dates are scraped along,

mixed up with Sundays,

broken Fridays, Wednesdays

battered by the cold of mindless hours;

the gravel of minutes

left behind, cover

the sand of seconds

that is slowly being turned

into soil by the fecund workings

of the past.

.

A small plant pushes through the soil,

it joyfully opens its solar panels.

This yellowwood

will become tall enough

to become recognisable from the present.
