Before The Time Of Rest


Earth catches sunlight
Air the colour of earth
Ochre dusk

Desert meeting ocean

A time of Mercy
A quenching
And a going Home

The Bed of Consolation
Awaits day’s end
And end of days

But still there is
A Journey

Another hill and valley
Another sky and sea
Another road

To be traversed

Before the Night of Sleep
There is an Evening of Reflection

Before laying down
My tried and tested Body
Wearied Mind

My Restless Soul
Must wait with memory
As companion

And be assessed by Love
Before the Time of Rest
