November 2010 Poem A Day Challenge - Day 24

Here we are on Day 24 with the Poetic Asides prompt:
For today's prompt, write a spaces poem. Your poem could involve white space, outer space, inner space, a parking space, the space between one day and the next, or something other type of spacing. Allow yourself enough space to play around.
Another good prompt for wide open interpretation. I played around in one poem with the idea of silence being a space in between the noises, and how that space could be welcoming or intimidating, depending on your mindset.

For fun I tackled another poem about outer space, and how the distance from Earth to other places looks deceptive from where I'm standing. Here on Earth, being Earth-centric, or an Earth-O-Phile.

It was easier to write a haiku based on this prompt, same with a tanka. I'm getting better at condensing an idea down to haiku form, then expanding it slightly to be a tanka. You'd think it would be the other way around, squishing a poem down smaller and smaller, but it's not.
