In that space

Between the stars that shine

scattered like ash on the still water

Movement becomes slow and steady

as the heart beats like a comet passing,

breathing in and out

taking each moment and with care

weighing it back and forth

all of the thoughts and feelings

letting it slip away to move to the bottom

uncluttering the beauty that remains

reflective like a sweet dream.

Skies lit with watercolor memories

yesterdays rerun returning at unwelcome times

lashing the mind with its inhumane need

to rise up and be heard,

so I push it back down softly

into the murky depths where it belongs,

unseen and silenced I listen to a loon on the air,

filling the night with its quiet strange song

and I know in this space between

is where my soul belongs,

captured on the motionless screen of water,

dancing like a stray tear that ripples

disrupting the image

and the loon keeps its tune

to the rhythm of this night

and I stand aware

of all that is

and of all that will be.

  1. Good morning Super S,
    Just got back from our morning walk with the pups…
    Dad in town visiting and been busy, although
    Not too busy to think of you,
    How r u feeling? Life being life again,
    Art classes over except on as needed basis,
    Dog back to the vet Thursday am for her ear,
    Blowing up again….sigh…..
    Hard days at times but u know how that goes….
    Peace, love and prayers,
    Email me if you’d like,
    Will be in and out today,
    Perhaps even a blog later….
    Always my friend,
    K
