This is Days to Come, re-visited

This is days to come

Nothing is going to change;

not any time soon.

Take it slow,

take it quiet and slow,

let this new early darkness

descend

upon you.

Those bare branches, wet and black,

show full moon rising

pale and milky

in the ink sky,

swirling clouds like gauze

etched with rings of rainbow

colored warnings

and distances are spread wide, gaping, yawning, not closable.

So be still.

God knows the score, he settled it.

He

knows the ins and outs of physics,

He

created it. He

gets the loop hole

of miracles more poignant and painful and serene and hopeful and buried deeper than we can see,

He

knows. And we wait with Him

on this mad and fruitful plane, we hold

His hand

and count the days, we

reassure

Him

of our

goodness,

we are God’s strength; we

pray,

together.

There are sly moments passing into one another,

breathing through the canopy

of hopes and dreams, little dappled

sunlight moments

across the plumpness of a smooth cheek,

a shiny eyed peach.

The pitch of frostbitten

plum heaven

finds it’s colors in our

fingers tracing on the falling leaves,

we take our time

to find the hidden

as the grass bends under

the zephyr. We

catch our breath, our

hearts from beating too fast as we

sense the work of the detritus, what short work they make of

us.

So tonight we’ll

have our

talk with Hamlet and Ophelia and we’ll

wait out the winter coming, soothing ourselves

with our

cunning, our

charming, our

spring.

Just be still for now, no yearning.

Just let the absence in, let

hollow winds to seek out

what is lost be found again. We

have no end. So November, I forgive you.
