By Mike Johnson

Welcome to Alive Poetry Thread for 2015!

Setting in motion the year’s posts was the aptly beautiful Ferry Crossing, poetry and drawings by Leila Lees.

This week’s featured poem is Between by Mike Johnson. It is one of the poems from his latest poetry collection To Beatrice, Where We Cross The Line with graphic art by Simon Oosterdijk.
