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
