to just…..Be.

Day 8

There are moments that are brief and ones that seem to last days.  There are moments which may drive us to scream and stamp our feet.  This poem comes from those moments.

 

To go somewhere

Not to be seen

Not to be heard

Not to think

Just feel

 

To go somewhere

Listen to only the bird’s songs

Feel only the whispers of a breeze

And to just breathe

 

To go somewhere

To smile

To laugh

And to just…..

Be.

 

Of course, after writing this poem, after one of those moments, helped tremendously.

Long Live Poetry!!

    Gosh, I need one of these moments desperately. Your poem was beautiful and reminded me that I need to create one of those moments for myself instead of waiting for it to happen.

    I love poetry because you can easily express these moments. I love listening to the birds’ songs and the whisper of the breeze, too!

    Very calming. I wish there was an extra hour in each day to take your advice. Maybe it would give us the time we need to write more poetry.
