Time Between Time

Time Between Time


The sun sets down,

The last of its light

Fades softly into the night


Here and there,

A star peaks out

Here and there,

A bird whispers


I sit and watch

The sun sink low


Slowly, slowly

Every so slowly

The day fades

And the night rises


Yet for a moment

A moment in time

Between the rays of light

Between the night’s shadow


Time stands still


The birds do not speak

The stars hold still

All the world stands still

In that one brief moment


Day and night

Night and day

Shadow and light

Light and shadow


Both are present

Both are absent

Sparks of light appear

Creatures wake


Flickers of light dance

Where no fires burn

Songs are heard

Where no one stands


Then in the frozen sky

Of light and dark

A figure steps out

Of the shadow into light


Tall and slender

Skin white as the moon

Hair like the sun

A voice like angels

Eyes like precious stones


She slips among the trees

Spinning gently through

Dusk and Dawn


Then as quickly as she came

She slips back through the woods

Her green dress swirl around

As if wind took form


I follow at a distance

She comes to a mighty stone

Around three times

She danced


I follow after the second

But when I came to the third,

Gone was she

Then I look upon the heaven


Stars blink quietly in the night

A curtain of green light

Dances across the sky

So ended the Time between Time


And closed the doors

Between worlds
