A Very Precious Gift
Two maidens...one of light...one of darkness... met
right on the cusp of night. Time was a baby. The
firmament newly formed. The lamp of heaven had
grown dim. Sparks flew from their first meeting...
creating a new sense of awareness, most wonderous
Light was virgin, young, golden full of promise.
In warmth and liquid beginings, she stooped to
touch earth below. Stroking softly she brought
forth with trailing fingers..flowers, bird song,
verdant hills, sparking rivers to dot the land ..
fruited plains ...things of pure joy.
Earth was darks domain.. ..
Dark was never young. It was a deep velvet
blackness. A place where evil could stand erect.
Where even trees of a forest could hide shadows.
Strange thoughts could ride runaway horses. Fear
could be found behind any boulder. An exceptional
scary place to be...
Both were beloved of the heavens...
The meeting between them was a full out
struggle for supermacy...a clash of vibrant
colors, burnt umbers, rich golds, brillant
firey reds, delicate lavenders. Most promient
where the seamless greys , distorted watery silvers
Curiously flawed, unfinished...eerie...
A twilight that appeared to know no ending or
The one and only...the great I am... saw what his children
had created, so with a brush stroke dipped in love,
mixed with tinture of compassion... then topped of with
a giantic dollop of beauty....created a kind of beautiful
space between them. A interlude of peaceful quiet
We know it as Sunset. God's promise to the world
Once finished, he presented it to us ..this precious gift...
Given freely to us base earthlings..his everlasting word
that beyond life's shattered rainbows...there would always
be a brand new morning filled with hope, love and laughter
that rises overall the pain. .it awaits ..
Just beyond the sunset!
