i wed my heart 

to the horizon line

inhaling the breath 

that in turn breathes mine.


the liminal progresses

to a matutinal hue,

as i yield to

the auspicious sway

of the dew.


The Greek word “nychthemeron” is used to denote day and night with no separation between them, a single twenty-four hour period on earth. Once you leave the earth’s rotation (time), either bodily or through a quieting of the mind, separation is nonexistent.
