The aim of this paper is to approach an understanding of time through the concept of “poetic time,” and to do so by exploring the connections between theorizing, creativity, and ethics. Poetic time, in this sense, is a subjective phenomenon that we experience in our moment-to-moment acceptance of our ethical relationship to others. This acceptance is enacted by the decision to share our own allotment of time—our finite amount of time—with others, and others with us. This sharing of time finds and simultaneously creates spaces of mutuality and moments of poetry; it reveals and constructs worlds of mutuality.
