Time To Go Into the Sweet Darkness
"This poem was written out of that very physical and almost breathless giving away, most human beings feel, when they must let go of what seems most precious to them, not knowing how or when it will return, in what form or in what voice - that taking away of the light walking through divorce or separation, through bereavement or through simply not recognizing the person looking back at us in the mirror.
Sweet Darkness was written in a kind of defiant praise of this difficult time of not knowing, a letter of invitation to embrace the beauty of the night and of the foundational human experience of not being able to see, as actually another horizon, and perhaps the only horizon out of which a truly new revelation can emerge. The last line cuts both ways of course, we ourselves have often helped to make everything and everyone around us, far too small, by our lack of faith in not knowing, by all the ways we are not holding the conversation, by all the ways we have stopped being generous."
