Time and Space

Time and Space

A Poem by G.W. Saitreux
"

a reflection

"
Time, what a fragment,
Life, what a magnet,
Stars, what a beacon;

Time, fragments that have been,
Life, magnets of attraction,
Stars, beacons of time and space!

Space, what an unfolding void.

Time, never irrelevant,
Life, always temporal,
Stars, sometimes shine;

Time, displayed in the void,
Life, teeming with possibility,
Stars, perspective from time and space!

Space, stories yet to unfold.

I like the poem's spare, brief expression. It is interesting how the three elements of time, life and stars appear in repeated tercets, while space is mentioned in two single lines. My sense is that it is because though our knowledge of time, space and stars is limited, it is still greater that what we know about the far reaches of space. That may be why more hope seems to be attributed to space. A thought provoking entry, this one.

You write with confidence which makes your writing so much more effective! As well as this, you are clear on what you want to say but your language also leaves room for interpretation making it so much more enjoyable for us as readers to gain our own personal perspectives and opinions. I love it!

Thanks for the review! I'm glad you enjoy my writing style.
I love this one! For me it is the celebration of life in the stars. You words are uplifting and the meaning is simple, yet complex as any wonderful writing can do. Thank you for this happy sigh moment with my morning tea.

I like the way you start with 3 observations, then in each stanza, you expand on these 3 things a little more & a little more. Your philosophical approach to these astral phenomena leaves much "space" for your readers to interpret in their own way (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thanks for the review and the delightful pun!
I really like the way this poem was written. A lot of times I not only enjoy the poem itself, but I like to see how the poet used spacing and aesthetics.

This poem was well-written and also visually appealing to me.
