In between spaces

My mind resides in drops of moisture

translucent thoughts wispy like the wind

breezes through windows yet no relief

from the mood that surrenders my soul

to seek the peace of somewhere.

Eyes fight to open

as I move like a phantom place to place

never really here or there,

just somewhere I cannot name

a place I’ve often been.

I see the light yet fight to reach

pulling myself up from this fading moment

perhaps to lay a spell and ponder

in a dream world I shall catch

the essence of self once more.

In between spaces of light and dark

no particular reason, perhaps just a lark

of nature and energy not in sync

I ask for the intervention of fluid water

soothing as it releases drop by drop

from clouds that move sideways

unlike my inner thoughts that slide in circles

coming round to find

I stand here wondering which words to choose

to suit the mood

of a melancholy day.

  1. Well, I didn’t finish that thought. Then again, I think I’ll just leave it hanging. Always glad when the melancholy lifts and the sun returns–which isn’t going to happen here for a few more days. They say it’s coming from the South! 🌧💦☂️💤

  2. Thank you Michael,
    I’m always happy to see your comments pop up, gives me a happy warmth, even on melancholy days, which are far and few between, yet always on that fine dividing line between quiet bliss and acceptance of it all. Life moves along at its own pace, we ride our magic bus to get from place to place, but also enjoying the sights, sounds and aromas along the way. Oh, and the smiling faces too, can’t forget those😀☮🙏🏻

  3. Beautiful writing, Kim, and though it may have been melancholy you captured for me something of the essence of this life–how we are hanging in between, moving through this dream which we are both more and less than, with our memories of what has been and what will be, so grand in stature they are hardly able to insist upon the present…

  6. I slipped and fell
    into the interstices
    of my imaginings
    and was carried away
    by cyclonic winds
    tossed about like
    Raggedy Andy
    and woke up in
