For the First No Time

The sound of a word that starts with the letter "f"
provides the fertile start to a seed bed thinking green;

Redact the forecast's firestorms and friendly thunder
to reach a prediction that says everything you can mean;

How many seconds are in the moment of awareness
that time you can tell it's right this precise now;

Ask more questions and you'll think about the past
as a machine to tell what the future will be;

Yet perhaps you will accept the behind and in front
to gain a perspective that invalidates concern for cause and effect;

Maybe not, as it's not in the water to feel that the gift
of the present is available without rigorous efforts.
