31st of June. Mysteries of Time.
This poem I have written as the Earth time has been changed to one second more on the 30th of June 2012.

A Second of the 31st of June.
(On the Eve of the 31st of June)

I go into a second, the first and the only one -
A new moment dividing June and July.
So much can happen in the second -
Jiff of birth and joy, grief and departure,
Encounter, discovery, vexation.
So much can fill in the second.
I go there to watch the one-second show,
And plunge into the Priestley's fiction.
A chance to live up one more second of the never day.

'I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.'
J.B. Priestley

If all I ever asked was for a second more,
To live and breathe all the raw and gore
That fills this twirling haven, my terrestrial home
My birthplace, my coffin, my earthly throne.
If all I ever asked was for a second more,
Twas not a god who delivered this timely gift
But a celestial movement, an amalgamation so grand of time and space.

I do like metaphors. They can be equivocal and sent to your mind as "the language" you transmit at the moment. Poetry as a refined art helps to polish the thought. Dawn, it's a very good piece : ) - a personal observation and perception of the time we are given. I am new here and it was the time which brought me to this place. Decius, thanks for comment. : ) Blowing up is necessary in any way for any any one to move up and forward. I do believe that time will soon bring other people here. It always happened to me. We are all slightly mad, aren't we? : )

Welcome to the forums Waterdrop and thank you for creating this thread, I would not have otherwise felt stirred to take the time to write up that poem. As for madness it's only the ones who think they're not mad that leads the rest of us to conclude that we are.
