The mind wanders like a pack of wolves;
Pouncing on everything in front of it,
It never slows down, never lets up,
But if you can take a moment,
To stop in the middle of it all,
Like a honey bee on a flower’s petal,
You can almost feel time stop and life flourish.
You melt into relaxation,
Like a daisy, rooted in a sun-soaked field.
You can crawl inside your mind,
Discover the words engraved on the wall;
And know what you truly feel.
You can’t know who you are
If you never ask, “who am I?’.
The soft glow of lightning bugs on a starry night,
The chirp of crickets on a lakeshore,
The way the breeze catches the fall leaves,
And even how snow blankets the world in decadence,
Can make us discover the most human emotions
