Time Warp

Hastily walking running jogging
Trigger triggers hurtling funneling
Down vortex of my life’s tunnel

Few patches of faded negatives slide
Trinkets n milk teeth gleaming glide
Umpteen tales princes and magic rides

Surface, thrilling rollercoaster
Whizzing, joyous cracker rockets
Forgotten pals in memory’s time pocket

Excitedly curiously lifting the veil of tarp
From times past I catch a glimpse of a harp
Buddies, old vinyls, armchair in time warp

Old ditties reverberate in head soothing
Friends all same stationary, me drifting
Navigating bravely twists n turns tasting

They say rolling stone gathers no hay
Yet tasting cup of life self, happen what may
Is by far better, defying, denying destiny its own way

Time warp made me realize
I envied none as I surmised
I was richer living life king size

No movement can afford to be caught in a time warp and
exist in a state of suspended animation.
Theodore Bikel
Austrian, Actor Quotes

The timelessness of a concept has to be woven into the
running warp of dying time, vertical power has to be
wedded to the horizontal earth.
Ella Maillart
Swiss, Writer Quotes
If someone is making a judgment when they don’t have
firsthand experience, it’s intolerant. How can you make
a judgment on something you don’t know about?
Beck American, Musician Quotes

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences
of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared,
ambition inspired and success achieved.
Helen Keller
American, Author Quotes

In the business world, everyone is paid in two coins:
cash and experience. Take the experience first;
the cash will come later.
Harold S. Geneen, 1910-, American Accountant, Industrialist, CEO, ITT

There are those who think they can play you like a fiddle.
I never tell them they are bad musicians, I just pluck their strings!
Carl Stoynoff, poet/philosopher
