It has to be said – darkness and pain are the conditions of life since the first steps of human beings led them out of paradise. This is not to deny joy and love. But the creatures of darkness share in our life on earth, they accompany us in our hidden being. We turn away from them, we live in the moment, but they are clawing at our heart. Most of all we feel them in the night, they figure in our dreams, like spiders. This is a fact of our natural-born days. We see it in the contortions of history playing out around us. Our sleep is disturbed. Every kind of entertainment is devised to escape from this.
I look for love in the sheltered cove of night, where the dark colonnade of midnight may be transformed into a ring of gold, a corronade, through which the demons may not pass. We lie there together. The day will come – soon it will come – when the flow of love will reach down to the earth and repair the hurt and damage of our days.
