the space between
the space between here and there
then and now
you and me
us and them.
this is the space between. it is a feather delicately balanced waiting on the breeze. it is the suffocating indecision of a hospital room. it is a phone call not returned. quiet. this is a breathing space. a walking around on barefeet space. being human even in the dull and nag. this is that space. that space you do not choose to be, but that space you simply must pass through. this space is slogging through mud. don’t fight it. lean into it. gather up your images like wildflowers. hear your words. carry them with you in this space. it won’t last forever. ripples on a lake. all things awake from the space between, ready to create again.
