A Poem by Rebecca L. Manooogian
The sideways sun took hold of me
Contesting, the day is not done
has it just begun
it is an in-between
I’m leaning into love
the sun of in-between
Its reflections dance here, and there.
Creating potential everywhere
in the in-between
can feed my doubts.
What does it mean?
Uncertainty looms over head.
what if? why not?
Is all I said.
The morning sun allows for room
It beckons me at Eastern’s call
Youth feels right.
Old, not so much
not at all.
In-between, are you my Friend?
Your unrelenting, breath upon me,
Challenging, yes, prodding
for all eternity
I claim this land of uncertainty
And expose the yet-to-be’s
Freeing me to
“The root of all is planted in you” Baula of Bengal
