February 9, 2017 Poets United Midweek Motif/ Space


is there space enough      and how much is enough           how much is needed

step out the door             space is limitless                       space as far as the eye can see

and then some people do need a lot of space      it is not that they are such big people

but they have big ideas   big dreams                                 big possibilities

and space is needed to hold it all     some people occupy small spaces     don't need much

and yet accomplish big things              is it the space between the front cover and the back

space enough to develop the plot      tell the story                     and space to find the ending

when we lie down at night        is there space enough to roam free    or is it just too crowded

with old stories baggage            over packed                it is the second month of the new year

time to unload                         throw out the old                         make space for the new

fly free with the birds              learn their routes                         join the butterflies

flit from flower to flower         explore the space                        strut with the tarantulas

touch all that surrounds you    own your space                           outline it with chalk

you will find                            the space you have                      is enough

Yes, it is enough. It is always enough. I especially love the idea of strutting with the tarantulas. Smiles.
