The Furnace of Infinity.
Light fades slowly as evening falls
Like an unwanted guest, the darkness calls
Shadows creep across the cold stone floor
A sliver of light under the kitchen door
As daylight retreats from the darkening room
Leaving shades and shadows in the gathering gloom
A trickle of light, lingers a little longer
But finally surrenders, the darkness is stronger
A cold chill creeps from the dark of the night
Like a wet blanket, it clings so tight
A shiver runs down my spine, like an ice cold finger
Taunting, it seems to freeze and linger
Reminding us of our mortality
And that Life is a one way journey
A voyage we will not survive
No one gets out alive….
Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust
Death follows Life as it surely must
Energy to Matter, the Word is made Flesh
The Circle of Life begins again afresh
The Wheel of Time continues to turn
The spark of creation continues to burn
Reborn again in God’s imagination
In the fiery furnace of Infinity and Creation.
