How the Brain Perceives Time

Tick Tock Cacophony
by Rachel Hoyt

The ticks click by quick
as the tocks slowly knock,
then slick as a trick,
they meet up at the dock -
one moment, one prick,
a single time block.

The trick is quite slick -
all ad hocs turned flock,
while still ticking ticks
and chock full of tocks -
the tune coos and clicks
as time turns the clocks.

This poem was inspired by brain timing research which
found there are many internal clocks from which our experience is stitched.

  3. Don't know why I even stopped reading. This was fun.

    Times slips by
    Future present past
    How time flies
    Never stops or starts


Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
