This is a poem depicting time as an element or factor of death, symbolically - WILLIAMSJI MAVELI

@ hours of death ......

Time is symbolically defined as continued existence. This corresponds closely with the word " existence " that we may read "a flow goes". The Anglo Scandinavian word has the root of word " time " which in many early languages was symbolized with an arrow. The root of arrow is also used in words inferring flow. Until the middle of this century the majority lived on the countryside and was near the flow in nature. Our ancestors said them target of an arrow or where in the flow. They meant their entire living space and the duration of growing as flow. In Sumerian TIME means "life".

Time is progress, viewed as affecting persons or things. This is another definition but not quite as good as the first, because then would follow that time existed as the cause and force. Again we meet the problem in holding apart the virtual other world from the real world. Only material things or doings affect persons and things, but we may say that they happened at certain points along a timeline.

In the dawn, the "TIME" came to my bedside and whispered in my years, Dear, It is time for you to get up. The sun is awakened !. In the dusk, the "TIME" came to my bedside and shouted at me, It is time for you to get lost from here. The Wall Clock laughed. The timepiece belled, the wrist watch is dead - WILLIAMSJI MAVELI

Death is a flame...... a Poem by Williamsji Maveli

An hour is not sixty minutes,
A minute is not first division of an hour
A second is not second division of a minute,
A second is an atomic term;
A minute is an electronic boom;
An hour is a mechanical device!
A human is clock;
A heart is a timepiece;
A wrist is a watch!
A birth is on a time;
A life is the prime,
A death is a flame!



Death, Hours, Minutes, Seconds, Time

Death to me a transcendence into a different life form which is invisible to this human frame of Planet Earth. It is only visible if there is a need to be visible. Honestly, if I had my way, I would rather be invisible to all as the world is so unworthy of many things around especially dignity and morality....
