Hidden

I have been training myself to live in what I call ‘the in-between.’

As physical faculties diminish and cherished identities fade

My attention goes just to the side of what I used to focus on..

It is happening naturally and without effort

As what was interesting no longer holds a sheen.

The tone of your voice or exactly when someone’s eyes glaze over

Are my lighthouses now.

Why have the birds stilled just now?

Who is the ‘I’ when I moan: “I can’t stand myself today”?

We see only what we choose to see, are familiar with or that which is most obvious often because we haven’t had the inclination, need or time to go further.

Now I do and I am.

I found these photographs of snowflakes that help me know I am on the right track.
