Time Management

Free from time,
not driven by it,
we can still get it all done,
all that needs doing
without the stress of ticking timers.
Rulers over time rather than ruled by it.

Eating, sleeping, waking, doing
according to our inner clock,
something few are allowed,
or allow themselves
because we are so regulated by time.

Passing time, marking time, wasting time
would have no meaning
if no clock told us
we had just spent an hour sitting,
staring out the window.

When in fact we were solving big problems,
praying for someone in need,
dreaming of a change,
sending gratitude out into the universe –
timeless action not squashed into seconds or minutes or hours.

Big accomplishments
in a different view
of time.
