I know why she knitted
She was waiting,
Filling the empty spaces between being together
Needing something for her hands to do.
Something for her mind to concentrate on.
Something for the space between.
Some people knit,
Some play video games
Some have pets
Some have kids
Some get lonely (or maybe all get lonely)
And some go out to the barn to water the cows and feed the chickens
To fill the space in between
This is a practice, to Love in the space, to Love until
there is nothing in-between
to Love until we realize the space
was nothing and we are Love
