In a Given Moment
I'm not sure it doesn't still need some tweaking, but I'm way over the allotted hour already. And it's past my bedtime.
I was very sleepy when this skirmish began, so I had more difficulty than usual parsing both the prompt itself and the source material. I read Jung's foreword to the I Ching for about twenty minutes, and then I gave up. It's pretty cool though.
There's a whole reality that can never be repeated
Once its existence is completed
In a given moment
And the universe has moved on
Can you preserve a moment's essence
Use it as a mold that can't be recast
In any other circumstance
In spite of consonance
Every moment's unique rhythm
Can be caught in a crystal prism
Naturally formed by conditions unique
Though to human eyes it may be oblique
And yet, we always can see traces
For example, look at faces
The patterns of wrinkles thereon
Track the moments of their movement
Through time and space and circumstance
Causation so advanced we call it chance
Magic that might someday become science
If we sufficiently advance
