A curious thought about the sands of time

How two distant places appear in rhyme 

Existing as a pair in a fleeting embrace,

Two places, one world, in time and space.


In one hemisphere, sunrise paints the morning sky,

Awakening slumberers with a new day's sigh,

Whilst westward, a Turneresque sunset glows,

Bidding a farewell to light, long shadows grow.


Across vast oceans, similar thoughts entwine,

One celebrates dawn, whilst the other decline,

Yet in that very instant, profound and sacred,

Two places, one world, their thoughts related.


Time stretches beyond what we can perceive,

Bayeux tapestry woven, alternative history conceived,

We entwine our lives, though words may divide.

Two places, one world, with no place to hide.


So marvel at the wonders, the mysteries untold,

Time holds onto secrets, waiting to unfold,

In the grandness of moments, yet to be claimed,

Two places, one world, forever framed.
