the Bede Clock from ‘Twinter the first portal’



I heartART

My historical research is a personal renaissance of time-slipping into the past and materializing –truly being there, here, and everywhere via the art of 360 degrees of travel, and twenty-twenty vision. Visualization in three-dimensions (and often a fourth) is an author’s prerogative and a legitimate form of creative reincarnation. The quantum time machine of imagination requires nothing but an armchair, a clock with no hands, a pen, and a sheet of paper. And a cup of tea is nice.


There is simply

no tidy way to time travel

and tell the tale in order.

Time is a spinning singularity –

A whorl of light

A vortex of emotional particles

the universe breathing out of control,

and we are but visitor shadows

– flying

Sentient-driven dreamers

working the updrafts

wind-taken, buffeted

– toe dipping

into once upon a time.

Now and then freefalling


Spiraling through fragments of what was

– caught on the spires of an ancient temple

Suspended above the fumes of rebirth.

As curious passers by,

floating –

grasping at the random perfumes

of the past.

    And now the best writer I know (my favourite descriptive phrase of Veronica Knox) has now extended out to poetry. I’m not a fan of poetry: I don’t have a poetic mind, and don’t appreciate the twine and density of poetry. Nevertheless, this is lovely. This is above lovely.
