Just For a Moment
I took a moment to stop everything this afternoon. I sat in the fall sunshine. I felt the breeze on my face. Everything was quiet and yet I could hear things often missed in the crazy everyday hustle. The leaves rustled in the trees, a few drifted to the ground with the other colorful leaves scattered about in the yard. It smells like fall. I hear a nuthatch pecking out some insect in the bark of a tree. An acorn falls, I recall watching a Blue Jay picking some up as I looked out my window the other day. The wind whistles through the pine trees, I'm being pulled by the wild wolf in me, yearning to go to the woods and rest under the pines. The sun warms me as I shiver about the thought of being a wolf in a pine forest.
