The Space In-between


Art: Michael Parkes

To be enslaved by reacting
For a lifetime would be missing
The primary feeling of being.

It isn’t so easy to find that space
Between stimulus and response.
So much conditioning has blinded
Us to acknowledging.

This entire apparatus operates
Exclusively by this premise;
So blunt is life.
Breathe; you are.

What must it take to stop
Even for a minute,
And recognize above and beyond
All that is going on?

This vessel designed to be
The ultimate recipient
Of the most exquisite gift
So generously gifted.

Even a moment of such
A feeling can alter the entire day
Into a new becoming.
