Time will heal everything,
or at least that’s what they say;
--Niska Ramkhelawan

After the White Rabbit just
disappeared, Alice paused for
a moment staring into the darkness

of the lovely lepus lair, contemplating
Time, & challenging its authenticity
within this place & moment,

out of her body in mid-dream.

We know she didn't branch but followed that rabbit trail.

I love the allusion to Alice, and that final line is a slam dunk.

What I love about this is the creativity! The inspiration line and where you went with it. It was the fist one I read and I thought... I can't do this. But then I came up with something - but nowhere near as clever.

Having fallen in the tendency is to be lost in time. But Alice has the clear thought to pause a moment and not be overwhelmed. Reality is still maintained even in a a fairy tale here.

The creativity of taking the journey to Alice is amazing. I love how you finished the piece.
