Ripples of ochre colour 
etched by ancient hands 
cascade into the sky. 

Eons ago 
(A time too hard 
to imagine), 
a river flowed 
here. Right here. 

Above me. 

Swirling coloured mud 
into an 
expansive sea. 

Each 
swirling 
layer 
stamping its mark. 

(this colour) and 
(this turbulence) 
and 
at this 
(particular) time, 
I flowed here. Right here. 


Layer 
on 
layer 
on 
layer ..... 

Gazing upwards, 

marching 
forward 
in 
time. 

'Til the blue line 
of the sky 
cuts a 
sharp end 
to 
my gaze.. 

Light streaming down 
from 
another eon. 

Staring into space, 

staring
backwards 
in 
time. 

Across time's arrow.
