A few months ago, the world changed. Taking a break from my writing, I captured a precious moment outside my window. With all the global fear and confusion, I felt a longing to stay in that moment. Here is that moment, and the poem that it inspired.
Can I Stay Here?
Time stood still; I was held in a bubble of joy. Through a window, I watched our feathered friends survive. All thought slipped away. I became part of this simple act of nature – being. For a few priceless moments, the world changed. I lived with flowers, seeds, water, birds – life. Precious moments, no threat, no fear. In those exquisite moments, I experienced pure being, no threat, no fear, no pandemic. Can I stay here? Can I just Be?
