Time Diminished? Increase your Awe

Tick tock
Speeds up
Temporal illusions are
Mere brain constructions.

Each year
A southern
Layer cake grows
One, three, seven, nine,
Layer caramel cake
Grows to fifteen layers.

Subjective are the perspectives
Of the passing of time.
Speeding are seconds
Yes speeding are
Hours, each hour
Faster grows
Passages of
Time.

Except in
Awe.
Oh, awe,
A time
When time can
Swell and grow and so
I will seek the calm and the Awe
Dragging the time from a speed to a
Slow, just attempting in my way to enjoy the
Whole show.
