above our atmosphere
unlimited darkness
countless stars
earthbound matter so

square footage
we breathe move live
empty mansions
or curbside under yesterday’s paper
cultural territories
subway sardines packed together
desert highways whistle lonely wind

and in between
hands clasp hearts
reading text from the other side
of this war
inside and out
echo touch

resonate love
into the infinite beyond


Author's Note: I am inspired by Alison's latest explorations of "Space" and so many ways to go with this thread....hmmm this is just a quick idea really... MFS

I like this one too m'lady, nicely done! I just hope text messaging doesn't replace touch!

...mFs, i remembered ali's 'space' pome and when i saw this, and it by you, i read it with glee...you touched so many of my buttons, loved the in/out/zig-zagging of the thoughts you cause...
