Prelude to Eternity

Slowly, soundlessly the ocher ribbon
Spreads upward from the cusp
Drawing from the dark horizon
Another day for us

Slowly, soundlessly life’s little spaces
Are filled with memory
Leaving upon our faces
Lines of joy or misery

Slowly, soundlessly hours expand
To days and weeks and years
Slowly, soundlessly in time’s subtle hand
A lifetime disappears


These words came to me as I watched
the ribbon of dawn expand across the sky.....
