Time travel has always been a favorite science fiction concept for me. I am drawn to the paradox of such stories. I ended up writing a series of scifaiku on the top, drawing from this well known trope.
This poem is a part of the scifaiku poetry series about time travel which appeared inthe August Issue of “Far Horizons”. This was a magazine of science fiction stories, art, and speculative poetry.
