Take Time – Part 2

Yesterday I was so inspired, I kept on writing for our collaboration.  Here’s the second take on the anaphora, “TAKE TIME.”

Take time to absorb children’s laughter
Let their joy
seep in your spirit,
Re-remember

 

Take time to inhale the juicy fragrances
Of the world,
Let them
Delight your senses

 

Take time to savor flavors
All around
Let them dance
On your tongue

 

Take time to touch the faces and hearts
Of those you love
explore
New faces and hearts of  the lonely, broken, down trodden

 

Take time to witness beauty
And gratitude in the world
Let grateful hearts
Unite
