Age, Youth, Death, Renewal, Eternity?

This brief journey
the flickering, sputtering, guttering light that is our life
(our awakening, our delight, our terror, our pain,
our hope, our loss, our gain,
in which we glimpse, besmudged, through squinted eyes,
yet solid, real, bright, hard and clear,
A world whose beauty takes us by surprise
sometimes in wonder, or in fear) —
This journey,
told in days and years,
is just the merest hint
the barest glint
of a reflection
of the vast unfolding
which will lead us
to the beginning
of our eternal day.
