Alert for Betweens

 

Between

This line

And the next

My thoughts burst forth

Like fireworks

Shimmering against

The dark.

 

Between

This line

And the next

I may have strolled around the block

Or down the lane.

I may have stopped and chatted with a friend

Over a cup of Earl Grey tea.

 

Between

This line

And the next

A minute passes

Or an hour

Or a day or two.

 

Between

This line

And the next

A new year begins

Where

Advent whispers,

“Get ready.

Stay alert for the

Betweens.”

 

Between

This line

And the next

Pause with wonder;

Ponder with hope:

Long ago

Today

And

One Forever day

Christ comes

Offering,

Inviting

Life to the full.

 

Between

This line

And the next

Remember:

Who was

Who is

Who is to come.

 

Between

This line

And the next

Watch and wait

With me

For splendor.
