The In-between Time: Poetry by Kathleen Scavone

 It's certain that
 An anniversary dinner
 A visit from my son
 A trip to the coast
 An outing with friends or
 Watching the woodpeckers-
 Formulate life's highlights.
 They are the rich pleasures
 Fully anticipated and savored.
 But the in-between time
 Holds its own appeal:
 The shift in rhythm
 That a walk in the woods allows
 The joy of a spontaneous excursion
 With no destination in mind
 Or 'me time' when I
 Read, listen to music, meditate or 
 Sip a leisurely cup of coffee uninterrupted
 Entirely on my own.
 Those moments contained by the in-between time create a cadence 
 Where time opens with paradoxical stillness and rhythm.
