Timepiece

TIMEPIECE

I watch time tick by
Watching the watch watching
I pass the time

The watching eye sees
In being seen the scene seen
Meets the watching eye

  2. There’s a feeling of presence here, maybe it’s something about meditation; keeping watch over the breath to hold the wandering mind in check. Then there comes a point when a secondary self is seen…

    • Yes, I think you “get” it. 🙂 I have just finished reading David Mitchell’s “The Bone Clocks” and I think a little bit of influence crept in.
