Celestial Time Clocks circle in the sky The sun ladles out the day And the moon parses through the night Great and small wheels Jig and whirl Spinning time from space The Milky Way is The sky’s water clock Eons pass And the frothy world churns At the end Comets are deva tears Witnessing the collapse Light nests in darkness Later Brahma wakens with a start! Yawning OM The world is created anew Stars exhale Dust congeals And life jumbles to a silent beat In time Intelligence holds a thumb up to the sky The moon is pregnant again In each creation The Vedas unfurl to reveal the truth Stars and planets Mark off time and fate Like clockwork
