A poem and a sunset for Good Friday... 
 
Interim Time
 
When near the end of day, life has drained
Out of light, and it is too soon
For the mind of night to have darkened things,
No place looks like itself, loss of outline
Makes everything look strangely in-between,
Unsure of what has been, or what might come.
In this wan light, even trees seem groundless.
In a while it will be night, but nothing
Here seems to believe the relief of darkness.
You are in this time of the interim
Where everything seems withheld.
The path you took to get here has washed out;
The way forward is still concealed from you.
"The old is not old enough to have died away;
The new is still too young to be born."
You cannot lay claim to anything;
In this place of dusk,
Your eyes are blurred;
And there is no mirror.
Everyone else has lost sight of your heart
And you can see nowhere to put your trust;
You know you have to make your own way through.
As far as you can, hold your confidence.
Do not allow confusion to squander
This call which is loosening
Your roots in false ground,
That you might come free
From all you have outgrown.
What is being transfigured here in your mind,
And it is difficult and slow to become new.
The more faithfully you can endure here,
The more refined your heart will become
For your arrival in the new dawn.

Boundary Station

 

Terminus everlasting,

a broken transitory strewn

between the sun and moon.

Terminus everlasting.

 

A broken transitory strewn

with peccadilloes brash

and capricious actions rash. 

A broken transitory, strewn.

 

With peccadilloes brash

dancing starlit tales of glory,

shining gloss upon the story

with peccadilloes brash

 

Dancing starlit tales of glory;

terminus everlasting

that reality contrasting

dancing starlit tales of glory.

 

Terminus everlasting,

a broken transitory strewn,

between the sun and moon.

Terminus everlasting.
