POEM: “Living in Limbo”

Living in Limbo

 

life is lived

in the spaces between

 

the crook of the elbow

bent to bring the cup to our lips

 

the devil’s dimple smiling

just before that first warm sip

 

eternity peeks from behind

the crook of each bony finger

 

pinky extended toward 

the taste not yet reached

.

This past week has been challenging for the entire world, so I thought this poem would be both appropriate and cheering. I hope you enjoyed it. Stay safe, stay well, and read often!
