Stay right here

How can we walk
this narrow edge,
this curb of now
that holds the space
between that
and then
between was
and will be
between what happened
and what's next;
the precipice that holds
all that was,
and is,
and is to come?
Step carefully into the light
and concentrate
on keeping your balance:
the ship may tip a bit,
but if you stay right here
you're in no danger
of falling.
