The Spaces between Words

So often, in my prayers,
in the poetry I am given
in the words I am sharing

The space between words
this is where my prayer dwells
the living communication with God

Reaching with my mind, my voice
to walk with my God, my king
to sing a song of praise to him
This is my hopeful offering

Not in words, not on the printed page
not even words mused from my lips
breathed thoughts, sighs, too deep

Calling out to God
singing from my soul’s desires
petitions to my king
these I bring in spaces between words
