If the Sky could Talk. {Poem}

If the sky could talk,

it would tell us to just stop,

and look,


stop the madness,

remember the goodness, the kindness,

stop the hustling,

the appointments,

the stuff we need to buy,

just stop and look,

no talking,

stop now,


just breathe,

go quiet, get still,


look up,

watch the fleeting beauty,


let it fill your cup,

stop and look—

get out of that line,

go outside,

remember the blessings, the spirit,

no talking,

just watch,

the moon, it enters quietly,

a soft, meandering walk,

just stop,

now look,

if the sky could talk,

it wouldn’t.
