Einstein’s Apple

December 30

 

 

Einstein’s Apple

 

Time is a player in every play, forever running forward even as I try to claw my way into the past.  If I don’t provide a role, time writes itself in without regard for my intended plotline.  Like the weather, time is by turns gentle and fierce. I must pay attention lest I run afoul of it and lose my life and limb.  Though time is an arc I see swinging in my mind it is still the arrow shot and I am simply the fool with the apple.

 

 

 

Take a vacation from your expectations

Talk to me before I sleep

 

 

Talk to me before I sleep

Lay your hand upon my cheek

 

Talk to me before I sleep

All the years are yours to keep

 

Talk to me before I sleep

Fold me deep within your speech

 

Talk to me before I sleep

Hold me tight when I start to reach

 

Talk to me before I sleep

Never let me touch the sheet

 

Talk to me before I sleep

Warm me with your wondrous heat

 

Talk to me before I sleep

Precious are the things you teach

 

Talk to me before I sleep

Love and kindness is how you greet

 

Talk to me before I sleep

Into darkness let me seep

 

Talk to me before I sleep

In my dreams it’s you I seek

 

Talk to me before I sleep

I fear that I am in too deep

 

Talk to me before I sleep

Wake me to the morning dew

 

Talk to me before I sleep

Let me know it’s always you
