"Time Has All and Nothing"  by Joe DiMino

Time has 
All the elements;
Speaking of basics
There are the seasons—
Seasonal changes
We dress and 
Undress accordingly;
And then those 
Other elements,
For which we often
Speak of
As unplanned:
Those elements of love, joy,
Loss, pain 
That leads to 
Endless suffering—
In truth,
Time has only time
And is nothing
Everything else….
So, to say:
Or, out-of-time;
Is to deny
All those things timeless
Following the human spirit
Time is not immortal,
But things like love
And generosity
Should be
And can be;
Time is either
Friend or foe,
But never need be
Ultimate master....
