Welcome to the hop! back one forward one
To the young man at Pam’s Cafe –
Thank you for letting me sit in the ease of your confidence
and the relaxation of your youth
summer’s fruit hanging low and sweet
ripe for the taking
blue eyes connecting Rome and beyond
you must have felt my soul jump — the stretching of a candle flame
as you paused at the door
pushing one last wave of acceptance for what is
spreading seeds of what could be
What brings me joy is slowing down the wheel of time that spins faster and faster.
Being in the presence of the young man at Pam’s Cafe slowed the wheel for that brief moment.
I enjoy spending time with my 12 year old son—
his humor and perspective slow the wheel.
Dogs are notorious for putting the brakes on the wheels of time.
In the heat of summer
the height of growth and expansion
what brings me joy is the act of stopping
being grateful for what is
and pausing for what is possible
