Life – A Single Skip For Joy

Every day. We get to float aimlessly. Through the woods. On our way to and from school.There’s a large paved walkway. But there are also. Many tiny secret trails. Amongst the trees.They are curvy.And twisty.With ups.And downs.There are parts. You have to step over. And parts.You have to duck under.And there’s this one spot. Where a few trees have fallen. Smack-dab in the middle. Blocking the … Continue reading Life – A Single Skip For Joy

The Space Between

Within the flaws Of an ordinary day It sets sail On the wavesOf the wind   Unannounced And unassuming It arrives Gently On a dancing breeze The soulIs stillAs thoughtsTake pause And joy and pain Walk effortlessly TogetherAs one Unattached And finally freeIt calms the noise Yet enlivens The heart  And as you relax Breathing deeply Within the space betweenFor a momentLife begins Photo from freerangestock.com
