The Spaces In Between

She saw the night sky as a join the dots puzzle

and believed the stars were glittering cairns

pin point sharp

marking the pathways to the moon,

to Venus,

to the sun

and beyond.

You just had to join the dots

and follow the paths

to travel there.

She sketched them out

and straightened them up a bit

to make her master plan.

Now she feels ready to 

uncover what lies


hidden in the spaces 

in between,

then she’ll be ready

to go.
