It is those spaces that you leave
widening your words
into long slow thoughts
that intrigue me
invite me to ask 
all those questions that must
come to my tongue and fall
from my lips to your ears

It is those spaces that you mark
opening my heart
with long slow thoughts
that reinvent me
urging me to unbury uncover
all my soul and let loose
the yearning for all
those spaces that you leave.
