Betwixt and Between

     
Betwixt and between

Is an apt description for

life, now.

Never has it been

more true 

than in this 

time

and

place.
Klinik St. Georg in 

the ancient bath-town:

a place for healing;

a hub

for people

of all ages

afflicted with

illness

is 

betwixt.
St. George conquered

the dragon

and here,

All hope for 

complete victory

over

the emperor of 

maladies.
The hotel-like bedroom

has a balcony

with 

a commanding

view upon

the gray-blue majesty

of Bavarian Alps.
The room is furnished

not with a

Queen-size bed

with luxurious 

fine linens,

but with

the all-too-real

narrow hospital bed

on wheels

that is located near 

the red button to

summon an

on-call

nurse.
In the

 unrelenting

darkness at

night,

there is coughing

and sometimes fear

and 

doubt.
And then,

in the minutes

as the first birds

begin their

lively

conversation 

outside,

the

day begins,

fresh

and hopeful.
We are between 

fear

and

gratitude;

concern and

peace;

resignation and

Hope.
I am betwixt

two paths:

Steadfast presence

with my beloved–

sometimes simply 

showing him

I will 

Stay
And the

charm of travel

and adventure

that lightens 

the load 

and whispers:

Be

in this

moment.
The moment 

Between.
