Dr. Salma Shahida,
Different people had their times and their own thoughts about time in their eras. Some thought that time relates to the changes that occur in the world and the life within the earth, some thought that it was a Devin power and so on. Philosophical schools began the search for time and eternity, between movement, change, existence and annihilation, and the questions whether it is real or unreal time, perceived or imaginary...? There are two types of time, the physical time, and the subjective time. The first one includes the movement of the planets, night and day, hour etc. As for the other, it is the one that deals with the human experiences by which literature is concerned and recites the coloration of human experiences. Different people of different eras had thought about time, some saw that time only consists of the past and the future ignoring the existence of the present, some thought only of the past and the present excluding the future and so on. Some people connected the time with the problems that a human suffers from, some connected it with the changes that occurs around him, some with the changes that occurs in his soul etc. Time has three pillars which includes the past, the present and the future. It is right that these three times are connected, you did then you are doing, and, in the end, you will be doing. The poets use the time according to what suits their poems, sometimes they make it so long to express the heavy and sad moments they lived and suffered from in an emotional and beautiful way while other they make it short to indicate the happy times and the moment they had in that time in a beautiful and cheering way.
