A Brief Pause On Earth

The sun sets
In reflected glances,
The wind purr's
In delicate dances-
The stars align
Causing a brief pause in time,
Rendering a bright light
To move and shine-

Here, he dreamed
His little dream,
Never self-knowing for certain
Then, what it did mean-
For far too soon
The-End came and caught him,
Taking him back
To where angels fly
Dance and sing-
His light briefly upon earth
So brightly shone,
Where even time paused, just to gaze...
As by us all he flew, on his way Home-

No, he's not dead...
Just gone on singing,
Far, far ahead.


(see ya on the other side Townes.)
