The Jacob's Ladder 

The Jacob’s Ladder

First, the silence.

The trees motionless,
the birds no longer crying
or swerving
in air.

Even the waves drew back,
as if holding their breath.

What was approaching?

Was it a god
or an emperor
coming near?

A hush
of expectation,
veil lifted.

Then there it was,
blazing forth,
immaculate, radiant,
spilling across the water
like a carpet of light,

gold ribbed ladder
leading to Source,
the sun in its evening passion,
dying once again.
