Poem: "The Things Between"

This poem from the March 2009 poetry fishbowl was inspired and sponsored by minor_architect.

The Things Between

These are the things we realize
without quite seeing them –

the meaning of the story
read between the lines,

the things glimpsed from the corner of the eye
that skitter away leaving little footprints of wonder

the warning flag that alerts to danger
but is not there when looked for directly

the image from a dream, between waking and sleeping,
that hints of the face that will bring true love –

for our minds live with one foot in different dimensions
and our eyes can’t always keep up.
