Ray of hope.

It came to me in a dream

light across the void.

Our lives mere moments

fragile fragments of time

thrust into the tumultuous tempest

of a vast and emerging eternity.

It came to me in a dream

light across the void.

  1. LOVE this Alison! We chose the same photo. Bjorn pointed out to me that if you look at it closely, there is a shadow of a face in it – the profile! Love the circular coming back to the first two lines….and mention of the “tumultuous tempest of a vast and emerging eternity.” Well done!

  2. Wonderful, Alison. And much of that void (the physical one) is still a scientific mystery, which might turn out not as much a vacuum as we thought (dark matter). Perhaps that might be true likewise for the metaphysical void? Still, light shines through. Thank you for this hope.
