for Laurel and the "old gang"

A Step is not a Leap

 

Everything is out of focus
Looking through screen doors.

You struggle to control and

Reconcile the images beyond.

But you can't.

Everything is rough-edged,

Blurred.

Reality seems out of focus.

You get the feeling that to step

Out past the screen door

Would be to enter

A sort of twilight zone.

Stepping into . . . what?

Maybe more of a leap

Across an imagined chasm of fear

Into the seeming unknown of life?

A parallel here

Between thought and vision.

What you see is out of focus.

What you know seems uncertain, not easily

Verified. And until the screen door

Is opened, the blur of uncertainty

Will persist.

But yet, while the vision is not

Perfect, you still see

And you know what the images represent.

The leap is not blind.

Just impaired. And leaping into

Faith, as opening a screen door,

Is stepping into joyful clarity.

 

You knew it all along.
