Between the Lines


I want you to pay attention
to the
spaces, the silences, the pauses,
the gaps between the words,
the white of the page behind the black of the ink,
the calm that holds the chaos that spins through
this ever-turning world and I want to remind you of
the beauty of the unspoken,
the sweetness of the unresolved,
the invisible screen that holds the light and the shade
and the mystery that permeates everything,
the mystery that reads these words now,
and pays attention
to the
spaces, the gaps, the pauses,
the endings that begin
new conversations,
and the stillness
that envelops it all.

– Jeff Foster
