STOP for a moment

poetry No Comments »


for a moment
or two
take a time-out walk.
Breathe in
the damp forest floor,
hear the tree swallows’ song,
the brush snapping
as a distant deer
wanders through,
to the wind
wave the high pines.
Step over to a tree,
run your hand
the bark~
be still
exhale ~
and when today’s work-day
completes ~
take a real walk~
where ever you are
and imagine ~
