To plunge (irresistibly forward)

"Every moment of our life belongs to the present only for a moment"
--Arthur Schopenhauer, On the Vanity of Existence

Every evening we are poorer
by a day

We would perhaps
grow frantic

at the sight of this ebbing


of our short


of time

were we not
secretly conscious

in the profoundest

of our being that we share

in the inexhaustible

of eternity

out of which
we can forever draw

new life
