And so the sun rises
As it always has
As it always will...
...The night has had its say
And we listened patiently
(and not so patiently)
for The Lesson.
Duly noted, Nocturne.
But Now
It's Time
To bid adieu the darkness
To take hold the reins of Hope
To Move On,
To Lift our eyes
To See what's set Before us,
And with the Son,
To Rise.
"Weeping may endure for a night
But Joy comes in the morning."
-Psalm 30:5

Anguished soul
bent low
and bare
with the crushing weight of
The End

my view of Beginning
(or anything Beyond)
obscured by this cross
which is,
of course,
a door,
as crosses always are

but now,
for now,
tears turn myopic
all vision of morning

and with You

I weep

in Gethsemane

The Occasion.....

They do Still happen
And if you're Looking Up
you see
Double rainbows...
Broken seeds 
become saplings
the Stuff of beginnings
And the Someday that seemed so faraway
Suddenly becomes
Another step,
Another night
defers to
First Light
Zoom out wide enough
to hold the Song
to hold the Day
and Rise
to The Occasion...
