Interstitial Time

Interstitial Time

Past, present and future: we see only part
Images reflected, distorted: a mirror dark
Imagination breaking asunder in this art
Within a crystal of time, a transient quark

Interstitial time, one moment and the next
And the gap between: void space of time
Changes between life and death perplex
In the hour striking, between the chime

The space between times, between then
And now; the darkness of the Friday night
With the finality of that great amen
And the blazing dawn of Sunday light

Fragments of each life, and not the whole
Weeping: An empty tomb, an Emmaus stroll
