To understand time one needs to understand that in the Universe time has no meaning.
Imagine the rim of a bucket. Time as we think of it is all around the rim. Show me the beginning and I will show you the end. As you look forward into the future, look far enough and you will see the past, look even further and you will see the present. Our existence, the Universe’s existence is a circle, there is no beginning and no end.
There is a welcome in the light that lifts its face at dawn. I see the curve of the smile in the cloud's edge before the sun comes to take possession of the sky.
Birds hear the whisper and join in with ancestral song, brushing off the rimy cobwebs of night with pure memory gilded in the springing notes.
