Long Days and Short Years

just trying to pay attention so I don't miss my life

A Poem for a Pause



A word with room inside

to pause

and sit-your-weary-brain-down

for just a moment

or two.



A word with the ability

to watch rain fill the sky,

feel your body settle into a chair,

or be carried along by some music,

so Full

you forget yourself.



A word that amplifies true things

spoken softly

like you are loved


and a blessing to many.

Things that are certainly true.



A moment to remember what it is

you’ve been given,

which would be

everything you need.
