There Will Be Time 
by Terrie Leigh Relf

There will be time


to light candles,

watch them flicker,

to ponder myth and truth

before the final countdown.


Yes, there will be time,

to make a list,

give thanks for all the mitzvahs

while the after-burn engages

your friends and family watching

via simulcast.


There will be time to remember. . .

before separation

becomes acceleration,

as moons and planets

gather within a galaxy

of glorious stars.


Yes, now there will be time. . .

to voice your hopes, sing your prayers

that you chose and were chosen:

No longer lost,

the first tribe of Human+.


 (dedicated to Simcha Goodman)


More from author Terrie Leigh Relf:

The Sisterhood of the Blood Moon

For thousands of Earth years, the Transgalactic Consortium has had a quiet interest in this planet and its inhabitants, the Haurans. While the Sisterhood of the Blood Moon works together with the Consortium and Haurans to maintain balance in the universe, the Blood Moon is fast approaching. The power of this moon reveals untold secrets . . . including a sacred covenant with the Mora Spiders. There is an ancient pact that needs to be honored—but at what cost and for whose purpose? The world may come to an end. But will there be a chance for a new beginning?
