It Matters

I have written poetry since I was a child. I found this quote on Pinterest that explains what poetry is to me. I don’t know the author of this quote, but I love it.

” Poetry is what happens when your mind stops working,

and for a moment, all you do is feel. “

 

A place.

A smell.

A sight.

A song.

Feelings rush in –

The moment slows and freezes.

A thought.

A vision.

A memory.

A sound.

Time stands still –

Nothing else matters.

Our lives are filled with all of these moments.

Our bodies just skin that carries our souls.

Slow down.

Take time –

for the stuff that really matters.

Breathe in

Breathe out

The good and the bad.

Life is a gift.

Each moment, it matters.

The time we are given is not just for ourselves.

~ Heather Dawkins
