The Break (Life-Saving Pause)

poppy

by Christina Hubbard. It doesn’t take much

to slip, when

we think

we’re strong. When we’re doing

what we love, going for

dreams, making

waves in the world.

But maybe doing

Needs to stop,

Breathe,

Remember

Who gave 

Feet their strength to run.

Hands, their grip to write.

Throat, its voice to praise,

Head, its thoughts to lead.

Body, its grace to stay

Bowed,

Restored in the break.

(Life-saving pause.)

This post is part of Five Minute Friday. Our one-word prompt was PAUSE.
