Pause - My One Little Word
|My curly headed shadow |
on the screen as I write this post
The warmth reminds me to pause, my one little word. I stop and take it in. In front of me the lake is a bright reflection of the sky on the ice, a fine blue-silver color that makes the afternoon sparkle. The puddle of mud on the lake's edge reminds me that winter might be in the soil but atop that frost lies some indications that spring could be coming soon. I dream... for I know that March and even April have bore some nasty weather. I take this as a reprieve and soak in the ideas and possibilities of the spring soon to come. I chuckle at the sun glimmering on the screen, accenting all the dusty spots and dirt. I pause again and smile. Someday I'll be a fastidious cleaner - someday - maybe.
But for today, for this brief moment, I want to take it in, relish the warmth at my back, and simply pause.
