Something Coming

We are beginning to understand something of what is coming, to go beyond sensing a shadow in the woods watching us, and to see it take shape, see it coming toward us across a field, zigzagging as it does, now standing idle and watching the sky, now heading directly for us at a trot. And realizing that we are seen, that it will find us no matteru what we do, we are slowing down. We are standing very still hoping to blend with the waving greens of this raw springtime, to stay downwind of it as warmer breezes pick up and buffet the leaves, the grasses, tossing everything in a moving salad of life; we sway on our legs, trying to move with the air that surrounds us, and we stop thinking of what is around the next bend in the path, stop planning our next escape route, and begin to merge with the moment;y we have slipped into a painting by Van Gogh something is coming again across the fields and we are open as sunflowers in full bloom to these last moments on the earth.

Losing the Light

You’ve been thrown like a stone, skipping across the surface of moments, rings circling outwards from where you have been, knowing you are losing the here and now. Until you begin sinking, seamlessly drifting down and the world is still outside in the growing distance. But you are not drowning, there is no pain, there remains the ordinary day all around you, and so you ask, what happened to the light? Charles
