Meditations in Fast Times: 10. Down in the dark


Down in the dark,
down in the dark,
in the dark we have been.

More than watchmen wait for the dawn;
all of us here await the coming Light.

In the morning of the world,
the everlasting Light breaks over us
the light purifies all rivers and oceans,
the light shakes the desert sands,
the light twists the cedars,
and its fire strips the forests bare.

More than watchmen wait for dawn;
all of us here await the coming Light,
so the darkness shall be dark no more,
and the stillness shall dance,
for the Light shall be felt so deeply,
—for Light shall surely purify!—
that we shall be children in the Light,
and shall be Light while we last,
while Light lasts.

This is intersection of timeless moment;
It is here that our time and all time is redeemed.
