Daily Prompt: Sit Stay! The Gift of Stillness

A Golden Moment

THE GIFT OF STILLNESS

Life is so often ordinary, repetitive,

a low hum of sameness,

a blindness behind the eyes.

It take the crack of a golden sunset,

and the scent of numerous for us to

lift our heads out of the clouds of unknowing to

feel the hairs raise on our limbs.

That is when we can stand still,

if we can still stand, in the presence

of that which is only known to

those who have stopped

long enough to

notice.
