Each Little Spark

Day 20, 30-day #candleflame challenge.

“As essence turns to ocean,/the particles glisten./

Watch how in this candleflame instant/blaze all the moments you have lived.”

~Rumi

Many times when I wake up I feel the rush of the day.

The urgency

The push and pull of my electronic digital life.

But mostly what I feel is gratitude.

Which is what slows me down.

Gives me the space to breathe

To think

To take that moment

To actually slow down.

To simply tell the stories.

And to understand my own.

I often feel like there isn’t enough time

Though I tend to squeeze the last

Drop of marrow

From the every day bone that is life.

People are what give me pause

And the beauty of each little spark

That is lit.

I am grateful for the all the lightning bugs

In my life.

Every day.

You all are so pretty when you shine.

And I get to catch you for that moment

And release you back into the wild

Where you belong.

With thanks.

Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
