There are moments
when the universe pauses.
Instants when galaxies cease their spiralling,
when the stars allow their subjects
to lengthen their orbits by a metre or two;
when the planets themselves
add a couple of seconds
to the intervals of their orbits.
There are moments when creation shivers
as the Almighty draws a cosmic bow
across its strings;
when the powers are confounded,
and the demons head for the abyss.
These are the times
when words grow crystal-clear
to reveal the skeleton of truth
hidden deep within;
when the voice of the prophet
is heard ringing, inescapable:
You are the one!
