Takipsilim

 

Parnassus and

The Elysian Fields

Asgard or Valhalla

 

The keep of the

Great Spirit,

Shangri-La

 

A place, a time

Not day, not night

 

Forever in-between

 

Exotic name that

Is ordinary

In a daily way

 

We make too little

Of the dusk,

Of paradise or heaven

 

But this (for me)

Newly charges

In most ways

 

Takipsilim

 

Few things are

Clear in this

Cob-webbed world

 

But through the

Loving haze of twilight,

 

We can anticipate

The night, looking

Through another

Hazy, maybe

Kilig entry

 

Into day

 

Renewed insight

From the gift

 

A timely word

Of reflective

Time

 

Takipsilim
