There are moments ...


there are moments
when the world sighs
and the winds change

altering
us forever

love, death, birth

new worlds
knocking at our door
unfamiliar in our hearts

redefining
reshaping

we open
our arms wide
and embrace
and invite
everything to change

and then
there are
the small moments
that go unnoticed
with a passing whisper

a kiss goodbye, a wave, a touch

a summer sunset

that weave our days 
into a tapestry of routine

filling us up
to reach out for
another day

: : :
Sorry my friends, I have been a slacker this week on blogging.
Sometimes it's nice to take a break.
And just be.
And enjoy.

Hope you are doing the same.

How absolutely wonderful that you can take a break in such a fabulous place! We haven't seen a sunset here for two days because of the rain and wind. ;-) Not good this time of year when we should be getting snow! What a terrific capture! (As always, I love your poetry, too.)
