There are moments


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!
