Finding Space In-Between

Finding Space In-Between

by Lauren Taub Cohen

The fizz of excitement

courses through my body

with uncorked ebullience

as the wild rush

of creative rapture

ensues.

This is a sign

to pause,

step back,

and expand

my awareness

even more...

Because

at times

this titillating flush of energy

can confound my body

and tip it toward

the terrain of fear

which triggers

the discordant pulse

of the past

to thump furiously

upon

the present.
