The Ebb & Flow of Possibility

In between
The dead
And the not dead

In between
What is
And what is not

In between
The light
And the  not light

There find
The realm
Of possibility

Seen only
By those who conceive
A world without absolutes

Where dreamers dream
Between sleeping
And waking

While the world flows
Between being
And non-being

In the wakening hours we dance
Between self-remembering
And self-forgetting

This is the ebb and flood
Between the conscious
And the unconscious

Like the darkness
And the light
In eternal conflict

Only the master sees
The dominance of either
Is true darkness

While the light burns brightest
In those who come to know
The balance of both

Becalmed ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #303

A grey day
Light flattened
By a thick
Midday haze

Made all the more grim
By my mood
Impenetrable as the atmosphere

From full steam
To dead ahead slow

All stations stop

Close my eyes
Deep breath

Not stopped
Becalmed
Diminished light emerges

Find the blue
In sky and  sea
Contrast highlight with shadow
Underway, with tranquil gratitude

Bluster ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #296

With some bluster
Does the wind complain
Drives the sea
And the clouds
To fraught disdain

In these throes do I
Count my many blessings
For the calm
Which stills me
Deep inside

Unlike the waves
Upon the water
And the sky
My mind is quiet
Without torment to promote a cry

And while horizon
Soon the sun obscures
The star within
Shines bright
With everlasting light
