Mag 109, 3/18/12 No Matter What

                                                                    image: Robert and Shana Parke Harrison
 You woke up knowing
the dream was correct
"How the earth moves and works".

"No matter what you do, with a wrench,
pry bar, hammer- you cannot change truth!
No matter what you try- you cannot alter time."

It is as slow as it goes, with dread
or as fast as it flows with your joy.
So own every dream, thought,
word and action.

For all is all woven into
and recorded by the skies;
and ground, buried underneath,
in the finely heated halls of time.

First 3 lines captured my imagination. Throughout history, answers/truths have come to mankind in dreams. And now I believe that as being quite probably TRUE!--grin! Probably???

I really like "finely heated halls of time"...

I like the "woven into and recorded by the skies". I like your use of quotation marks too.

You never spoke a truer word... 'Cept the heated halls could do with a thermostat occasionally...
