The Gatekeeper
(Connecting Generation to Generation, Moment to Moment)

I can still see him now,
walking the land
at the end of our day.
His long shadow
stretching across the land
saluting the setting sun.
Listening to the breeze
slowly moving the pines
in concert with the sunset.

Surveying his domain
in a moment of thanks.
Collecting the feelings
inspired by nature’s
changing of the guard.
Continuing life’s connection
to all things now
and all things to come.

Even as before, I watch
him through youthful eyes.
Now knowing his thoughts,
formed by years of experience
and a Devine connection
to the rhythm of the ages,
the language of the universe.

Not just another sunset,
but a passing of the baton.
Connecting the day with the night,
yesterday with tomorrow,
creating moments of recollection
of life’s passages from now to forever,
insuring our never-ending existence.
