Twilight is a time for sharing -

Twilight is a time for sharing - and a time for
remembering - sharing the fragrance of the 
cooling earth - the shadows of the gathering 
dusk - 

Here our two worlds meet and pass - the
frantic sounds of man grow dimmer as the light
recedes - the unhurried rhythm of the other 
world swells in volume as the darkness 
deepens -

It is not strange that discord has
no place in this great symphony of sound - 
it is not strange that a sense
of peace descends upon all living things - 
it is not strange that
memories burn more brightly - as the things of 
substance lose their line and form in the softness 
of the dark - 

Twilight is a time for sharing - and a 
time for remembering - remembering the things of 
beauty wasted by our careless hands - our frequent
disregard of other living things - the many songs 
unheard because we would not listen -

Listen tonight with all the 
wisdom of your spirit - listen too with
 all the compassion of your heart - 
lest there come another night  - 
where there is only silence - 

A great
    silence -
