5 Aq’ab’al of dageraad

in vroege schemering
is de ontreddering
groot alsook
de verwondering

at early dusk
is the upheaval
large as well
as the wonder

The word Aq’ab’al signifies “darkness.” In K’iche’ Maya, the term “good night” is Xoq aq’ab’. But this sign is also the first light of dawn upon the horizon. It is the moment when darkness and light are equal. It is dusk and dawn, the equal night and day of the equinoxes, the “in between” times. We cannot come fully to the light until we have recognized and understood our own darkness. This is a time when we may easily “walk in between the worlds.”
