stand and stare

A day for reflection.

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

Today’s skill is to just be. No challenge could be harder in this world where we are judged to be who we are by what we have and do. Enough of judgement now I have time (and permission?) to stand and stare . Except I now sit and stare , stand and stare is a dream away or as much a challenge as any other.
Here’s a llink to youtube  today’s challenge . Enjoy the moment away from coal face while listening to it

Have a nice day 🙂
