And so it goes – Poem by Ali Grimshaw

at either end of night
there is an opening to light
between, "Good Morning"
and the next curtaining of eyes

there is an opening 
between what remains on the list
the permanently written yet unresolved
and the one who holds the pen

there is an opening 
without a defined doorway
that resides within all light
a heartspace without walls

it lies in the pause before the next 
twilight of the in between
rubythroat mellowing to nectarine

  2. A lovely poem – and aren’t the openings where all the good stuff steals in, the glimpses of divinity? I especially love:

    “it lies in the pause before the next
    twilight of the in between
    rubythroat mellowing to nectarine”
