Moonrise (Stacy Wills, 2012)

The man who has seen the rising moon break out of the clouds at midnight has been present like an archangel at the creation of light and of the world.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

After the Big Bang

After the Big Bang (Stacy Wills, 2012)

 The new thought entered,
silently slipping past 
the old dragons - 
 those timeworn twin sentinels 
of doubt and despair, 
caught dozing.
It will always be this way,
they murmur in their sleep...
It will always be this way.

The new thought enters,
small but potent;
a veritable atomic bomb -
capable of razing the status quo.
The dragons  roar awake
too late - 
the old guard obliterated  
in one big BANG!

In the aftermath -
amidst the ensuing chaos,
a  strange pathway forms:
surging, singing,
pulsing with light, 
sweeping me into the river
called Life.
