Life’s Liminality

Latin for threshold, limin

Is the point where nothing

Makes sense, where everything

Is disoriented and disequal, where you

No longer stand on solid ground

And you stand before the breakdown or breakthrough.  It

Leaves you uncomfortable and uncertain, but only until

It doesn’t.  Only until you cross the boundary, the

Threshold. Pass the rite, the ritual.

You’re just not there yet.


Today, I’m participating in the WordPress Daily Post Daily One-Word Prompt.  Today’s word: liminal.
