Poem Alert! : )

 

Living in the Pause


I lean to rest now,
needing every post I pass,
each bench, each stone.
I pause for the egret
on the hill
stalking mice,
and the bobcat
who stumbles toward me,
a baby,  with huge paws,
and spots.
I motion, “Leave the path,”
and he tumbles into a culvert
by the side of the road.
I pause for his mother
on the hunt,
knowing her kitten is safe
at
Tennessee Valley,
where the land
is safe,
and the animals and plants,
allow us
to lean
into wisdom,
as we walk, like grace,
through their space.
