Thoughts on time inspired by Heidegger's, "The Basic Problems of Phenomenology."


Time, the Heraclitic river
The Heideggerian shiver
Things past
Things future
The former, no longer
The latter, not yet
Time now, wow !!!
For every now
There is only this now
That now was then
The other now is when
All a jumble
A philosophic tumble
Nows are never the same
And never single
Duplicated forever
In the jungle of time
