Pause

What does pause mean Miss James?

To stop for a moment, breathe, and just be.

Yesterday, we paused together in Kindergarten.

This morning, I pause alone.

Work calls to me.

Breakfast whispers my name.

Chores needle me.

But still, I pause

I sit, and sip tea.

I ponder, reflect, doodle, write, and color.

I treasure the cool breezes.

I marvel at the sunflower blooming after being decimated by deer.

I admire the beautiful red tomatoes.

I sip my last drop of tea.

I breathe in and out a slow relaxed breath.

I whisper a prayer of gratitude.

I gather my pause and all it’s blessing, and press them deep into my heart.

Renewed, I move forward into the day.
