I stand, looking out in despair; bereft but of memory of what once had been before me.
Was it ever there – the beauty, the peace, the completeness? Does its absence prove its existence? The ache in my soul was not there until I looked out to see it gone. The hollow in my heart abstract until part of it was removed.
The view from here to there now marred with trespass. The once crystal air now etched with floating webs. Beauty once flawless, peace once perfect wholeness once complete - each now surrendered and soiled.
Hindrances suspended in airy haze– delicate, fragile view – now concealed.
Do the once familiar, but hidden scenes draw their fullness and purpose from the emotions they evoke? Possibly as much as we are made absolute and human by missing them when they are gone.
What then is it called – that which would veil what once we first saw and now but half remember? That which fetters our sight beyond the rail – across the flatlands - to melancholic remembrances?
The answer found in the dark diaphanous folds of the garments worn by life as she dances across our lives.
