Between Here and There

Between gnarled branches
And decaying leaves
Where rustles
And the occasional odd hoot
Create a song of paranoia,
And between the start
Where trepidation rises
And the end
Which is nowhere in sight,
This is where dreams fall
And die.

But between beckoning branches
And vibrant leaves
Where idle banter
And the joy of a child's laughter
Create a melody of exuberance,
And between the start
Where excitement rises
And the end
Which opens up to a new goal,
This is where dreams are revitalized
And created.

Take a walk through the woods
And maybe you'll see
The fall of a dream
Or the beginning of another.
