When Does Time Begin

When does time begin?
September school or
Midnight at New Years?
Rosh Hashanah or Chinese New Year or Hijri?
Or Easter

With Basho’s “song in the heart while planting” 
or Oliver’s wild geese honking northward?

When the ovum engulfs the jetting sperm or
When the head crowns or when the cord Is cut?

When does TIME begin?
With the diagnosis or sentence or
the narrowing horizon of age or
the forever of following the hearse to a grave?

When I awoke with a poem pounding through me?
or when your eye kisses these words?
