The Space Between Words
did you hear that
did you hear a sound
it’s unlikely you did
since there was silence
in between the words
falling among phrases
the pause separating
the chosen sentences
there is a meaning there
it’s often not what’s said
it’s the space between
did you hear that
there’s meaning in

Ah, goodness. I love those spaces.
Absolutely, that’s where the real meaning lies! Well written! BTW, Indian philosophical/ spiritual texts have often spoken about this, if you’re so inclined. Have a great week, John!
Nicely spaced out for us… 🙂
Very well said. So much is said without using words. And so much is misunderstood.
Silence and in-between and spaces can be profound. If one is listening.
This is perfect.
Superb… The beauty of silence cannot be enjoyed and appreciated by all.. And when mutually relished .. Oh boy … Words never less needed..

Very insightful! But too many people don’tleave any spaces between theirspokenwords they justmumble onandonandon
The expanse of vibration between words of prose woven like spacetime embracing worlds as they dance in an endless vortex.
Yes they need a space.How thoughtful your poem’s theme is!
Yes, have heard a lot of those silent words over the years. know exactly how it sounds 😦 Sometimes spoken words are nicer..
Sometimes, the unsaid communicates more than audible speech. The thoughts within the spaces aren’t expressed.
Yes! And isn’t it the spaces between that make up so much? Lovely. 🙂
It’s not those mean blacks, it’s the perfect whites.
I just love those spaces, the more the merrier!
