The dark obscuring the light
Then passing through
Not indulgent nor milking its poetry
But offering a moment’s space for reflection
An opportunity to shift
An opportunity that waits for no one who pauses
Pause and it’s gone
The kind but firm nudge to leap
A reassurance that we are in control of nothing
The power of a thing is in its vanishing
It is the beautiful slap
in the face of the Great Lie we’ve been sold
That we can have the world for the asking
That we can buy our security for a few
As I gaze through my 7-Eleven-purchased eclipse glasses
I am reminded that
the world is insecure and unpredictable
Presently in the midst of both a great enlightenment
and a mad fall simultaneously
A breathtaking flux
Which force will ultimately tip the scales?
As the moon passes across her sun
and darkness falls for an instant
so does any semblance of security
Don’t be disappointed
This is the good news
As the earthquakes become more and more
prevalent around the world
so does the quaking of all our ideologies
What’s in store for us?
And are we ready?
