TAKE TIME

take time to be grateful
take time for smiling

Take time
to be of the earth,
let it nourish you
soak its sweetness in your bones

 
Take time
To be of the water
Let it drop on your tongue
And quench your insatiable thirst

Take time
To gather around the fire
Let family and friends
Warm your heart and soul

Take time
to fill your lungs
breathe in mindfulness
Let out peace

Take time
To just be…

 

Melting Impressions

When I pause
and take my time
to pay attention
to those things presented
to my mind
I find
as I grow older
left out more often
in moments colder
fewer stand by me
shoulder to shoulder.
As numbness creeps
from fingertips
it seems at times as though
I’ve lost my grip.
Once precious memories
begin to slip.
Heartfelt refrains
of Auld Lanng Syne
each passing year a spirit
a little more or less refined
reaching, reaching for that
touch of the Divine
Glancing back at footsteps
melting in the snow
impressions not indelible,
their value I do not know
and I would have someone tell me,
One who took the time
to know
before I go
Despite my flaws
that I tried
not to lead or follow,
but stand alongside
I would like to believe
I will be missed
when it’s my time
for my last sigh.

Take Time
To close your eyes
And listen
To a distant wind

 

These are my collaborators so far.    Feel free to come by any time.

#I LIVE POETRY and all things creative. I LOVE words. They hold so much power to bring joy and healing and play into an otherwise ordinary life. Words can also shift the world into a better place. Let's explore! Let's create! Let's heal... ~ Love, Marie Lukasik Wallace

  1. Take Time
    To close your eyes
    And listen
    To a distant wind.
