Poem: The Nature of Reality

Tim Lenton, 6th Apr 2016 no comments

A poem by Tim Lenton.

I try to hold on to time,
which prevents everything
from happening at once

and space, which prevents
everything from happening to me

and then I find there is a jewel
at the centre of the quantum world
which suggests that time and space
are not real

so perhaps everything
is happening to me at once

The jewel shines at me knowingly
so small, so small
so uncertain.
