a moment

I made my coffee very dark this morning
it was a good mistake
the phone did not ring this morning
and that provided the opportunity to
relax my shoulders
ease my thoughts

it's so cold you don't want to step outside
but the sun bounces off the snow
and the birds decided to come out and play.
which i didn't realize
when i stood in front of the window
and i realized i could see the gold flecks on their
feathers

and i remembered the beauty
when you stop running so fast
and you remember what it means to breathe
and let in the possabilities

That was really beautiful. Although from where I'm sitting it's too cold to breathe in slowly like that.
(Oh yeah, I've been lurking since we saw each other on the 30th!) :)
