In between poem and painting in progress for day 10 NaPoWriMo

In Between

In between not quite done,
In between layers, colors,
students, seasons,
In between expectations,
greatness, humility,
Catch your breath,
hone your path,
hold tight,
steady, focus your direction,
Look in between
the negative spaces,
to find a balance
try looking
in between.
