Veil Of Dawn

Early morning

The crisp stillness of

Just-before-daybreak,

When the fog clings

To the blades of grass,

An ephemeral blanket

Upon the slumbering earth,

Before it rises slowly

Into the waking light;

The boundary between

Earth and sky,

Night and day,

Dreams and reality...

All are a blur

In the silver haze.

It is where I wander

On my silent walks,

In the middle distance

Between reality

And the realm of dreams

Before the world awakes;

As I trail my hand

Into the misty veil,

What dreams could I collect

In the glittering dewdrops?

... And now, with diaphanous hands,

And the murmurs and yawns of birdsong,

It reaches upwards

With iridescent fingers...

To disappear with the night,

To return to the sun,

And be one with the sky

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"

6154

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
