|"Eternity, Spirit Visions" ©Mary Montague Sikes|
Is eternity a wall through which we step?
Staring at the sky as a child
The stars glowed far away.
Reaching out now, they are closer.
Colors lessen, yet grow deeper.
Purples crawl out of the darkness.
Blues are vivid, but greens reach out to me.
Perhaps they mean an early spring.
Life dies out in the winter,
But rushes back in springtime of the year.
Plants burst from the ground.
They break through the eternal wall.
Eternity is a light that frees the darkness.
It is just beyond the wall
That we fail to see.
It touches us with quiet calm.
