New morning light Green and glimmering leaves Awash in radiance Translucent windows to Eternity. In the early summer light Tiny yellow blossoms, Dropping off to reveal A green bud growing larger Then ripening to red In the late summer light. The temporal sun birthing timeless light Massless photons warming Mother Earth In Perpetual Now* To nurture the becoming and perishing Of Passing Now†
† Time passes as a serious of events that become and then perish, where Now is that infinitesimal instant when an event ceases to become and begins to perish.
