We Would Do Well

Since the earliest hour
like a thespian veil
drawn tight, 
across the world's stage
awaiting only
the director's cue
for the curtain's ascent
and the act's first light
loosed in the parting
to shine in the shadows below.

It's getting late
and light,
like a high house spot
cast low, 
our feet down the aisles
and toward the exits
stage right and left;
we would do well
to follow it close
until the light of the lobby 
shines full on our face.

Psalm 119:105; Luke 1:78, 79

2 Cor 4:6; Ephesians 5:13-15
