Walk Slowly

I love this poem…and the lovely reminder to slow down…thanks, Carol, for your wonderful poetic and artistic posts!

Radiating Blossom ~ Flowers & Words

It only takes a reminder to breathe,
a moment to be still, and just like that,
something in me settles, softens,
makes space for imperfection.

The harsh voice of judgment drops to a whisper
and I remember again that life isn’t a relay race;
that we will all cross the finish line;
that waking up to life is what
we were born for.

As many times as I forget, catch myself charging forward
without even knowing where I’m going,
that many times I can make the choice
to stop, to breathe, and be, and walk
slowly into the mystery.

~~ Donna Faulds ~~
