that Black Hole

Is nothing but Fear,

painting a tunnel onto a rock that looks so real,

so dark and endlessly deep,

DSC_9587-11.jpg

that you dig in your heels hard and desperate and

DSC_9592-16.jpg

when that doesn’t work, you

DSC_9676-100.jpg

 thrash in your spirit thinking you’d rather face bodily death,

even death, than go into that terror, that Black Hole just ahead.

Open my eyes to see You between me and It.

Your servant angels bearing me up on their pinions,

gently staying my runaway train on

the track where it rises up, higher and nearer

To the Light of Your everlasting presence.
