  1. Juxtaposed with "drifting snowflakes," the metaphysical statement, "the space between what once was/and what is yet to be," becomes concrete and emotive, and the "space" is now temporalized.

    Kate's beautifully-crafted, contemplative haiku provokes the reader to see beyond the text horizon of the poem.
