Spaces Between Words by Howard F. Stein

Spaces Between Words

I have attended to your words
One vowel, one consonant,
One syllable at a time, their
Flow into a stream of thought.

I have listened to the spaces
Between them: short and long,
Ones that rush to be filled,
Spaces to linger in, dwell.

Letters alone never offer
Fulfillment but a place to start.
Letters only give me hints
But it is in the spaces

where I can breathe
and find you.

Dedicated to the participants of the International Psychohistorical Association Conference (May 19-21, 2022).
