Still

Still.

Quiet.

The pause between…

 

 

Inhale…

 

 

Perfect moments.

 

The world is made of perfect moments.

 

Each moment perfect for something,

 

One thing.

 

One.

 

 

Exhale….

 

 

We careen through life, never in one moment,

Never in one, always looking ahead to the next or the next three, or the seventeen moments from the moment we never saw,

On to the next, on to the next, on to the next, on and on and on and on and on and on

So quickly the world becomes a blur

And our memories are built from the thoughts we had of anticipation of a moment that came and went unrecognized because when it arrived we were thinking or another moment in the future so that our past is created from our thoughts about what the world will be.

 

Phew.

 

 

Inhale…

 

 

Life lives between the breaths.

Between heartbeats.

 

In the quiet.

 

In the fall of a drop of water

From my body

After the shower.

 

 

Exhale….

 

 

Still

Quiet

Be still

Be quiet

 

Just for a moment…

 

Be.
