New Poetry by Neil Ellman

The Mood of Now

(after the painting by Yves Tanguy)
Now is the time
   that all things happen
Now the beginning
Now the end
     all in this forever once
     as if there were never
     more than just this now
     at once
Now is the center
     of the gyre
     and now the edge
     expanding at the speed
     of when
Now whatever happens
     whatever will is now
     between the now and then
     the color of now
     is all there is.

- Neil Ellman 2014
