Time was a face on the water, and today it was the face of our father. We came to them near the water’s edge beneath the rising moon. “Time is a face on the water,” the spirit said, and it was, rippling and swaying with the wind. Distorted. Glistening with the light of the moon and the final golden rays of sunset’s leaving. All there was now was time. Time to reflect on what they had done. Time to be silent, and still. The woodland creatures returned, the waters cleared, the wind calmed. Time was a face on the water reflected with perfect clarity, and as our tears fell to join it we were humbled. Time was a face on the water, and today it was the face of our mother, weeping.
