In Illo Tempore*

Labyrinth passages of time
built into the soul,
by the hands
of  experience
Dark night ghosts that haunt the
existence in cryptic messages
of ages past

Dancing spirits
from the full
 and ripe flame
warmed the
with primordial wisdom
of light penetrated the
eons and brought it forward

the now.

A star burst on the discovery
of human kind
  and set from
the naked self  showed  its
in the labyrinth

In illo tempore:  Latin,  "at that time,"
"that time outside our own reckoning,"
"the time of myth"

"The myth, then, is the history of what took place in illo tempore, the recital
of what the gods or the semidivine beings did at the beginning of time. ...
." Mircea Eliade
