Travelling Through Time

I took this photo near Spa in Belgium. She was flying, she didn't care about anything. Love her.

(English version of the following poem below)

Tic Tac

Par Ben Heine

Attendre, attendre, attendre,
Le temps n'a rien à me vendre,
La pendule me gouverne égoïstement.
Les secondes me charrient cruellement.

Mais il me suffit de courir avec élan,
Alors, c'est le futur que j'aperçois,
La vitesse dérobe au temps,
Un instant d'éternelle vérité.

Le retour semble improbable,
L'ivresse est complète,
L'espace se désintègre,
Hier n'était qu'un rêve.

Je m'enfonce encore
Et m'accroche à la lumière.
Un soupçon d'égarement,
Dans un océan de matière.

Mais je ralentis à présent,
Le passé me rattrape.
Ce voyage était une illusion.
J’erre à nouveau sans repère.


Tick Tock (English version)

By Ben Heine

I must wait, wait, wait,
Time is haunting me,
The clock controls me selfishly.
The seconds taunt me cruelly.

But I simply need to run fast,
Then, I can see the future,
Speed is the way towards
One minute of eternal truth.

The return seems improbable,
The ecstasy is complete,
Space around me disintegrates,
Yesterday was only a dream.

I am so attracted by this.
Light is coming with me.
A moment of distraction,
In an ocean of matter.

But I slow down now,
Past catches up with me.
This travel was just an illusion.
I wander again with no landmark.

As soon as I saw this, I thought ... that would be so fun to draw (only with your permission of course!) I don't think I could do it justice though.

Fantastic shot. :)
