between worlds

islamabad by night

HOLLY JOHNSTON 12N

between worlds

quietness is found

walking with the stars

as lights and engines

of a civilisation slip

away we remain two figures

of night taken

under wings of silence

with cloudless skies

and wide minds

on this high hill I stand

neutral ground

it’s dark here and light there

but it’s calm and we’re watching

cold breath unfurl and hooting

to owls

this is the world

between worlds

where thoughts don’t clash

but flow and heal

let’s breathe this new perspective

now look on into life-

that fragmented yet repaired

inconsistence of beauty

we’re outside of now

and on into another time

bracing for a storm

to find

light blurring

cold fading

resolute love
