Spirits Dance at Dusk

Recommended Posts

the spirits are about right now

 

it's that perfect time

the bridge between night and day

between the mortal and eternal

 

all is luminous

yet fading

 

electric blue and indigo everywhere

 

there are ghosts flying around

 

they swish towards me with speed

 

the ghosts of those i have loved in the past

 

i detect their faces against the sky

as they are temporarily released from their eternal places

 

i am the one who remains caged down here in time

unable to see it all as it truly is

 

caught within this beautiful trap

both reluctantly and willfully

 

as each moment passes i feel the wisdom of the ending

 

it calls out to me

peacefully.

To receive love, you have to give it...

Hi Douglas,

 

 

Images and thoughts arising as one goes through phases of meditation. I think you captured the essence of such a moment in your images of the liminal:

 

the bridge between night and day

between the mortal and eternal

 

 

This is beautiful!:

as each moment passes i feel the wisdom of the ending

I, too, love twilight time. Beautifully expressed, Douglas.
