There are wonderful spaces between words They show the difference of the words shown Without the spaces the phrase would run on And there would be little that could be known The space bar is large to make things easy I hit this with ease when space is needed I must show dividing space between words A hot button, a most used spot heeded Even this poem, spaces are about Signals the end of words and start of more Space is necessary to continue To bring a poem a much needed floor An ending space that I do spread onwards If I choose, make a statement at the end I will show off some spaces here towards The emphasis of a word, now a blend

    Great way to go with the theme offered in Black Eyed Susan's contest..Enjoyed reading this afternoon..Reads like a winner to me..Yes, I did write two works in different forms about my sighting of beautiful Goldfinches this morn but it was the females and not the brightly colored males..Maybe the males will show up tomorrown..They are so beautiful and a rare beauty they are here..Sara

    Looking at you keyboard again? It works as humorous piece so I CAN'T say I dislike it. It grows on a person. Better yet let me think about it, give me some space!
