Push Pause Please
As our days speed by and I fight for my glee,
I long for a way to regain my sanity.
For time to stand still for just a little while….
to push pause please and bring me a smile:
Pause for a bit of ruminating
Pause for a saunter or stroll,
Pause to see beauty through my camera lens
Pause to hear nature’s calls.
Pause while the rain pitter patters,
Pause for a flower bud tight
And pause to reflect at the end of my day,
in the sun’s tranquil, golden light.
Oh yes a button to push at anytime,
to push to my heart’s content.
Yes I will push pause each time I must,
For a pause is time heaven sent.

This poem was written in the fall, when I knew the garden would be done blooming soon, and the sometimes hectic days of the holidays would be looming. The phrase, push pause please, came into my head loud and clear almost like a song or chant to be sung.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog. Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.
If you enjoy reading this blog, I welcome you to share it with others. I enjoy spreading the blog love, and I appreciate all who come and read my blogs. I hope to more overtly spread some blog love through both my blogs in the future.
Special Note: In the Language of Flowers the lavender pictured here means calm. When I see lavender, I pause and take in its intoxicating scent. A sweet pause and time to reflect.
I leave you with a little bit of sentiment about taking a pause. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
