The Space In-Between
The fire is burning robustly this morning,
a soothing warmth filling the in-between.
What is in that space?
between you and me
There is a space inherent in combustion
that allows the spark to ignite
—a necessary element for life to flourish
and for love to flame.
There is also a space in-between
overwhelm and balance,
cranky and kind,
emotional and serene.
This space cannot be seen,
but it is evident when it is needed.
