“Emptiness” by Maria Walton

It’s all about the

negative space now—

the shapes made within

and between

the branches of our lives.

I never could see it before,

or only glimpses— all foreground,

blinded by the obvious

beauty of form and sense—

black lines against a grey sky

missing the interplay of polygons

and the fantastic show

of kaleidoscopic metamorphosis

that lies in the bardo of the physical world,—

that illusory expanse

between objects,

and the imaginary vestibule

between you and I
