HEART HISTORY & THE FINE ART
OF TIME TRAVEL
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.
BEING THERE ON TIME
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
working the updrafts
– 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,
grasping at the random perfumes
of the past.
