Pause

The new year barrels towards us

The Earth spins us faster

The To-Do list piles higher

Srop

Breathe

A new day begins

Moments surround us

A moment of stillness

Stop

Breathe

Taking things moment by moment

Staying present

Clearing the mind

Thank you to Margaret Simon for hosting Poetry Friday this week!

  1. I’m finding myself wanting to quote most of your poem as parts that I particularly like. The repetition is powerful, and the message–staying present–is oh-so-appreciated. Thank you for sharing this.
