How To Create Time

how to create time the dream book read:
its title flashing for a moment from its spine
in the mind's half-sleeping bookshop,

beyond Time.
oh, that we could extend the golden minutes beyond
the limits that we perceive and grieve over

and then, joy to find the landscapes, homes
we thought obliterated
and learn again old home truths

as if, at the beginning:
new rose blown in the gardens,
fresh as the earliest winds;

suspended between
our Eternities
