The Space In-Between


The fire is burning robustly this morning,

a soothing warmth filling the in-between.

What is in that space?

between breaths

between thoughts

between words

between heartbeats

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.
