Nothing Between

"Between God and the soul there is no between."
                                                              St Julian of Norwich

The falling scarlet leaf
has just become 
a wing of fire
on the blurry nest of the pond,

ruffling the tangled solitude
of mirror trees
that have been untying
 their rippling-ribbons of light

all day 
over the deep fins of loneliness
swishing through 
the shadows of things.
