Deja vu … when time’s sequential walls dissolve
as if the fabric of time itself has folded …

The strange feeling of remembering the remembering
and the astonishment at the contrast
between the logical impossibility of it
and the undeniable and unsolicited
certainty of it

Some people believe sequential time is an illusion
which covers a deeper timeless truth
and that these sequential perceptions of ours
are the necessary toys of our spiritual child selves

Much as our science and logic give us security
against the naked responsibilities inherent
in our understandings of the spiritual and non-logical
underpinnings of life

So, perhaps, sequential time serves as our first rudimentary
perception of time’s deeper form
and that beneath this sequential guise, it lies around us
everywhere and always, at once, equidistant
and immediately available to those
who have shed logical and sequential modes
for more direct methods of perception.
