Betwixt...Heaven given in a fresh summer
breeze spiraling un tethered for fulfillment
Between...committing footprints walking ever

forward marking ageless space gratifying the
understanding of importance taking place

Betwixt and Between emanating emancipating
restraints from deep within crux of mind forever
rising in awareness as doves fly arching your
way yielding peace in prudence of days getting
through nights fearful of evil's blackness giving
meaning to rites of passage

Today's consciousness brings Tomorrow's living
bench marking great visions in due diligence as
reason for being one footprint ahead of another
following through making a difference stepping
in accordance thereafter

(c) Betwixt and Between Thereafter

Vivian, Very nice!

Reviewed by Rory Dall (Reader) 3/6/2012
Quite a simple theme here, just like the breeze, the words spiral upwards and onwards. There's a lot of imagery crammed into three verses but the poem as a whole works well.

There is a lifetime in this poem!

one footprint ahead of another,
following through, making a difference

This has such a special aura that it leaves me feeling like I'm next to a beautiful scented candle and listening to a favorite instrument...
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton 3/5/2012
You are the coolest poet, Vivian, with a style all your own, and when you take up the quill and dip it into the inkwell and begin to scroll your letters, words and lines of your poetry you are in your very own element, nobody can touch you when it comes to this kind of penmanship. I love it, I usually come away feel lighter and smiling. I did today.
