Today – A Poem

Today is not for apples

nor half caff lattes.

It is not for blazers and spreadsheets.

 

Today is for wild raspberries,

stockpots of soup,

ribbons in hair,

and loose leaf tea.

 

Expansion and unabashed creativity.

 

Today is not for pleasure,

or purpose.

 

Today is for passionate engagement in life.

 

Breathe it

Soak in it

Twirl

Laugh from your belly

 

Today is not rain,

nor the sun’s shining rays.

 

It’s a breeze-

soft, temperate,

a whisper amongst the hours

that makes you turn your head,

if just for a moment,

and watch the movement of the leaves.

 

Notice

Pause

It calls you to your unique greatness.

Listen.
