SUSPENDED

Suspended
Between heaven and earth
Between time and eternity
Transcending the mortal
Encountering the numinous
Floating
On a silvery sea
Weightless, transformed
Suspended
Between two worlds
Between two celestial orbs.
Luminous silvery tongues
Lick the darkened western sky.
Golden rosey fingers
Beckon from the east —
Sleepy world, awake.
Time and space
Suspended
Between
Silvery rays
Golden rays —
The divided world
Reconciled,
Overpowered
By the awesome,
Transfixed
By the numinous,
Caught up
By the ecstasy
Of the sublime.
Suspended
In between
One moment and the next,
One encounter with
The mysterium tremendum
Validates,
Confirms
Everything.

By Sister Ioanna
St. Innocent Monastic Community,
Redford, MI
