Blank may seem useless
Blank may seem a void
Blank may seem to be nothingness
Yet a blank space
is essential in written words,
essential between notes in music.
How healing, nurturing and self-loving
to receive a blank
in the midst of my day, my life.
I cherish the gap between my breath
and the silent darkness
as in the womb. . .
floating, loved and carefree.
