a motto for the busy

by Christel Crews

make time out of nothing
to breathe

steal a second
to release

create a moment inbetween moments
to focus

stop the world and within a blink
just be

Hi Christel, Yes, indeed. great write. I also agree with Lori. :)

I like the action words that start each stanza. I like the simplicity of this. This is a fine motto!

Hi Christel. Yes, words to live by, indeed. Nice job. Thanks.

Assuredly wise. Not always easy. Possible, though.

Words to live by to be sure. I especially like the Zen quality of this.

words to live by. I could almost hear Confusious saying these.
