Between two breaths
Between two heartbeats
There is life

Even in a blink
There is vision

Before tears
There is sorrow

Between two thoughts
There is inspiration

Within silence
There is a voice heard

Underneath turbulence
There is tranquility

In the crest and dip of a wave
Between a spark and a flame
Between two words
There is a story

There is a story
Between the setting of the sun and night fall

There is a story
Between a leaf dying and falling to the ground

There is a story
Between a raindrop forming and precipitating

There is a story
Between the ebb and flow of the tides

There is a story
Between sleeping and awakening


Read it, write it, live it, tell it

Unspeakable Love

How thoroughly wonderful when two voices come together as one! Enjoy this lovely read!

Emotional Spaces

Intro: This is part of a real conversation (tweaked a bit for meter and rhyming purposes) between the two peotic souls who own/manage this blog.

My pen hasn’t bled in a while, said I

Remember how it never used to go dry?

My nib would constantly pierce out of my bosom

Spilling ink onto page, bleeding with good reason

You ARE poetry and so will it remain thus

This love so strong, it takes the words from us

But the poetry always remains, my beloved

For, in your bosom lies the fountainhead

But I’m all out of poetry now, blunt are my paper swords

Unspeakable love I feel, I am so lost for words

Help me, dear Muse, all the inspiration your love begets

Squeeze me and wring out of me the last dregs

Rather would I fill you, darling muse, with my essence

Until poetry…
