There are spaces
between words,
meanings different
from what you think
you heard.
Between the vowels
and the consonants,
not null or empty,
but full of content.
Spaces between the
sounds you hear,
too sublime
for the human ear,
that we must drink in
through our soul’s windows
interpreting with time
as their meaning unfolds.
I put them on the page
where they deign to represent
the hidden messages, nuance,
not what you believe
they meant.
Direct communication
with your subconscious mind
tapping into your humanness
in essence to find,
reservoirs where
archetypes and understanding
abound, and we can connect,
without dissonance and distraction,
to find common ground.
