to press the pause button
time to savor wetting some lines
out on the Stillaguamish River
time to garnish your latest
culinary creation
time to weave intricate handcrafts
time to relish your Native American
heritage with its rich spirituality
time to wrap yourself in the warm shawl
of sunsets in either Taos or Firenze
time to meditate in Brunelleschi's Duomo
time for barefoot walks on the Italian Riviera
feeling the breeze off the Ligurian Sea.
Yes, yes, it's time for all of these
and more, as in this still-life painting:
you stand poised on the threshold
of life, as if born again.
