Fog

From the oblivion of sleep
Between the dreaming and the dawning
The fog of yesterday and now:
  Through the fog
    a voice
    a face
  vague echoes from ... somewhere
Then fading, fading away ...
The fog of voices, faces,
    of lights, movement,
    of eating
All fading ...
Out of oblivion
Beyond the dreaming and the dawning
The fog parts, disperses ...
  The clarity of eternal now
    familiar voices
    familiar faces
  Yesterday, today, tomorrow ... together
