Raise your glass with me

I have provided so much light for you to drink.
Why are you not sipping from this radiance?
Have you not learned that the color and flavor are richest
when the shadows are longest?

It’s time: time to gather these last rays of light
and carry them into the darkness.
Raise your glass with me, and I will fill it with stars.

(Reflection on the Gospel of Thomas, Logion 73
from my book, Illuminating the Mystery )
