Between Us


(Click here to listen to me read this poem and share the background of how this poem came to be.)


Between Us


the space between us

is a prayer,

not a rebuke.


not a criticism.



***Story Questions:

What does the space between you feel like?

What is your relationship with criticism? As a child? As a parent? As an adult?

What would it look like in practice if the space between us was a prayer? How would that change things? What would you do differently?
