Dark clouds and dust lanes


In a web,


like jewels of insight,

allow life

and stories

to spring forth.


what about the spaces

in                   between?

What is lurking

in the interstices?


Within the dark clouds and dust lanes

of the Milky Way,

the black space

between the glimmering stars,

Dwells a being.

Some call him Marella,


There is always something

in those spaces

in          between.
