The space between the words

Every musician that strives to create the perfect symphony is an apprentice to the tiny nightingale.
Every disciplined ballerina is an apprentice to the wind and to that which man calls nature, and so is every poet a student to the perfect word.
Yet everything and everyone are the followers of silence.
These words are from a place found between the words and therefore not subject to the meter or formulae of man.

They are as they are.  

Meet these words and the spaces between the words, as you would a stranger, meet them for the very first time. If they are not known to you, let them wait a while at the door of consciousness. Then welcome them in as you would a friend, invite the stranger in that you may join with them and they with you. If still you do not recognise them, send them on their way, or better still, go follow them.

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.

  1. Well now, lilting poetry and beautiful images – it all looks and sounds good to me! Well done. I especially love the spaces and the images behind the images which touch my heart and tingle in my awareness. Stride on says she – and let the blades of grass tickle your toes along the way, let the gentle breezes inspire your artistic souls and let’s all meet on that green hill beyond in the shade of that great lime tree still fragrant with its summer flowers! Till soon! Sandra
