The universe has gifts beyond imagining, they say.
I say: Put that to the test. Imagine impossible things.
Dream that which you cannot possibly deserve.
Pretend that the whole world is bent to that undeserving manifestation.
See as if, in the violet moment between Light and Dark,
The last flicker of Summer’s brightness can last forever.
Breathe as if, in the violet moment between Light and Dark,
The first gasp of Autumn’s descent is eternal.
Act as if, in the violet moment between Light and Dark,
It is the Universe that seeks to prove itself worthy.
“I believe deeply that to gain anything, you must surrender something.
Conversely, anything that you surrender, you must gain something back.”
What lies beyond “Not this?”
The light is surrendered this night. What might be gained on the other side of such an offering?
What is deserving of our sacred, open hands?
