Twilight Meditation

A Twilight Meditation

Deborah Beach Giordano
© March 17, 2010

It is a holy time,
these in-between hours
when it is neither day
or night,

with the both/and
of divine potential:
now anything is possible.

The blessed influence
fills the air;
even the weather

Gray Lady Wind
pauses, listening,
the next note

of the sweet-voiced
dove’s lament
as it fades
into the sky.

The gentle touch
of the lingering light
brings a blush
to the dawdling clouds,

as suede-soft flowers
clasp their petals
preparing for
evening prayers.

In this peaceful moment,
within this sacred silence,
let my spirit share the holy stillness
and abide with you, my Lord.
