Keep the gap


Between six suns

There’s still space for shadows

Between five moons

There’s still space for light

Between four rivers

There’s still a gush before the delta

Between three tables

There’s still some waiting

Between two of us

There’s still lot unsaid

Within me

There’s still shadow of the beast.

Between twelve lines there's the gladness of reading a new writing of yours

Very pretty, but need to know:

Who 'you' is.

The identity of 'the beast.'

I have the same problem with John of Patmos. For me, enigmas teeter unsteadily between delight and frustration. Heaven knows I have enough of them on my blog, so it's no criticism.

Pause, even for a moment, and the shadow will get no longer than before.

Pause and a passing light might even banish it to the shadow of an even greater beast beyond the pale.
