Telescopic Memories

I never stopped
and thought of time
like gravity or motion-
maybe oxygen draining
from an underwater tank
or the wrong end of a telescope
where everything is smaller
than it was a minute
or a year before.

    1. Definitely, Brian. I feel bigger in a lot of ways, but feel relationships, especially with my brother and sister, have grown smaller.

    2. Nice poem Ben. You got the time down pat. Time makes a difference in everything.
