Step of Eternity

But love laughs at the end of the world

because love is the step of eternity. Thomas Merton

Look into my eyes
and see me smile,

hear my sighs turn to

Life’s a comedy,
a melo-
filled with
wrong turns,
missed cues,
sudden revisions
and tearful

seems endless, and
the heat wilts even
the sleekest, young runners;

but on paths by cool streams,
by deeper waters we walk

as the sun slides through
night’s ancient gate.

To the cobalt sea
we gaze,
to the fiery moon;

For night steps gently, and
sleep will follow soon.
