T W I L I G H T ...

A beautifully spent Sunday, in reflection, in response, in the warmth of the sun, 
and in gratitude for what has been and what is...
Yes, the hour that has come to be...


the setting sun colors in celestial array
soon the twilight hour at this close of day
moments of change from day to night
ever yet the constant beckoning of light
the stars soon to sparkle in vistas above
the night to offer its guiding love
each moment of breath be it known
the receiving the giving in grace shown
the interface of NOW and change anew
blessings of BEING bequeathed to you
day night held as ONE in time
this the expression of the divine 
day begets night in its ardent vesper call
be ONE, be ONE, with the grace of ALL.
