The Space Within

The contrast was

unbelievable

whenever I looked

back at the way

life had seemed

before.

It wasn’t so much

that the scenery had

changed.

But it had became

more tender.

I found I could

be in my heart

and in the world

at once.

And, in a way

I couldn’t quite

describe,

what had seemed

separate

began to take on

some of the qualities

of the space

within my heart.
