Spirits Dance at Dusk

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...

what I love about this piece is its rhythm, the swing, from one cadence to the other like a dance.

 

all is luminous

yet fading
