Endless Time

It is said that only humans acknowledge the concept of time or the passage of

 

it. Animals do not place much focus upon it, although they are aware the

 

difference between day and night.

 

It is also said that the dead don’t notice time as it is recognized on earth,

 

minutes turning to an hour, and hours segmenting day and night, twenty-four

 

hours total, and a day multiplying into a week, a week into a month, a month

 

into a year, years into decades, decades into a century, and onward, ad

 

infinitum.

 

This means nothing to the dead, for they are not bound physically to earth’s

 

limitations. The dead, in spirit form, glide across a field past placid cows

 

toward sentinel  buildings rising against the blue, cloud-filled sky. They are not

 

visible to living man, but the man might hold no interest to them, either.

 

Insignificant man…lost in some alternate time. Endless time ad continuum.

And like the rainbow, circular rays of bent light, endless into infinity.
