The Rhythm of Light’s Disappearance – Martin Stewart

The Rhythm of Light’s Disappearance

Realise:
each month for three nights the moon disappears
a darkness comes over to envelope us

Trust:
this interval of no light has a rhythm
this time is not one to fear

Venture:
touch what comes to greet you
grasp what has dared to appear
embrace what has once been avoided

For a faith that endures is a faith that engages

Observe:
even on those nights of no moon
the moon is still there
it is only we who behave
as if the lack of reflection means an absence

One thought on “The Rhythm of Light’s Disappearance – Martin Stewart

  1. I wonder if this is connected in some way to the 3 days Jesus was in the tomb??? How quickly we race from what was to what might be without resting in this place of darkness to connect with it.

    Thanks Mart for these insights.
