Time is liken to a scarce commodity. It is looked at in terms of past, present and future.
Like a bucket
with the upper half
fully perforated.
You can never fill that bucket
with the liquid of time.
Yes, things may happen
in the fullness of time. But ...
As we know it, the essence
of time is captured
in an irreversible succession
from the past, through the present,
into the future.

The history of the past
is ever so large,
the present is expansive
with ongoing occurance of events whilst the future
is the face of uncertainty.
