On the threshold

standing between the light and the dark

between summer and winter

between day and night

For a moment we are in netherspace

no man’s land

a world neither here nor there

a borderland between sea and shore

a place outside of space and time

where order is diminished

and chaos reigns

Seasons turn

light turns to dark turns to light again

so ignite the sacred flame

dance and sing

farewell the time of growth and birth

welcome the long cold

carry the fire through the darkness

until the sun returns with the spring
