love in the space between

Written at the end of a long, lonely winter

There is love in the space between
between the acacia thorn
and the giraffes tongue twisting past it
to collect the green leaves

between the aardvark’s burrow
and the dusty swirl of a sand storm
blowing over it

there is love
between the red African earth
and the basking blue of a winter sky

between the milky colours of a rainbow
arching over grey, cloudy skies

the skies that blanket us
in the space between

there is love in the space between
between lovers and friends
and the subtle senses between them
between teacher and student
past and present
predator and prey
there is love in between

there is love in the space between
my hand and yours
knowing and not
it is in the waiting to meet
its in the arch of your feet
as you walk to meet me

This is where i love you
in the space between

between the anthill and the earth
the dusty, dry earth aching for rain
the earth that lies beneath us
in the space between
