I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino

BETWEEN

Between
two notes
is silence

We pray
but don’t hear
our neighbor’s cry

We want to be good
engaged in conversation—
but do we notice how loud we speak?

Do we notice
whom we are ignoring
in-between?

— Abraham Menashe
