Evening

It has started in just one hushed pinprick of light
The mystery unfolds all around you wrapping you
In the twinkling shawl of dusk as the shadow and
Light play across the wood illumining all the darker
Places in a concert of dancing luminescence 
A show put on for those who will remove their shoes
Sitting on holy ground because the curtain has
Been rent here and the sacred prayer starts 
Hushing us for night, ushering us to the arms of peace
Returning us to let go of the day and revel in the
Dance of all that is and all that will be, a surrender 
Of our soul to the fragile mystery in the divine
