Shoreline ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #220

Sooner or later
We all come to the shoreline
Beyond which lies a great unknown
A deep, unfathomable darkness

Most of us are allowed a choice there
To dive right in with more or less grace
Or cling to the land against the inexorable tides

No matter the choice, whether or no we have one
We are all, inevitably, drawn down into that great depth

I rather like to think a beautiful light awaits us there

Courage ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #180

We span the ages
you and I
across all sense
of time and space
our stories twine

And I can’t say
where it began
or where it ends
or if it ever will

It drives you to
the edge of mad
(where you found me)
but with your ever
growing faith
it’s clear

Life is not so
rational
as you would like

Discontinuous
In fact

Time sometimes goes
from front to back
while space folds in
upon itself
and plops you down
in the middle of
you know not
what

Yet still you stand
amidst the fray
(such dark embrace)
to write these words
you promised me

Love is not so
rational
as you would like

But its beauty
drives you still

The Next Refrain

There’s a little black cloud
In the sky tonight
Between the setting sun
And the bright moonlight
There’s an indigo rush
As blood and ochre fight
And the sea is becalmed
Beneath the mountains might

I have stood here before
In this sundown pain
And the stars still to come
After the planets reign
With the world writ so large
I feel my being wane
Falling deep into grace
I sing the next refrain
