BETWEEN THE WORDS – By Vicky Lettman

Today’s poem is called:

BETWEEN THE WORDS – By Vicky Lettman

You have gone into the pauses of our conversation

the time beyond time and time within time

you are in those moments when we sit in the audience

and wait for the curtain to rise

and the end when the curtain has closed

and the actors have taken their bows

you are within the pauses of the bird’s song

when we strain to hear the next note

in the water between the fish

in the traveler’s silence within a foreign language

you are in the air that fills the sky

in the moments after the sunset

you are between night and day

spirit next to soul

years next to laughter

you are in the space between the words

the connecting air around periods and commas

the moment before the artist picks up her brush
