In the reflection of light off of the fallen snow
In the spaces between the stars that glimmer in the dark
In-between breaths, in the pause before an exhale
Is where I seek for deeper, underlying meaning.
In each sunset sigh of both awe and despair
When I feel both inspired and terrified by my existence
As my feet walk forward but my heart draws me back
I find the willpower to both disintegrate and accept.
In those precarious hours of sleeplessness
When the world is quiet but the mind is restless and loud,
I allow myself to open the vaults of hidden suffering
Trusting in the space in-between mind and soul.
