Take Notice

Take notice of the moments that please –
the bird on the wing, the call of the dove,
the sunrise, the perfect day, sensual breeze,
the smile, the touch, the memory of love.

Take the gifts life offers when they come –
many fail at this, when the moment is here.
Like spring’s flowers burst and then are gone.
Those gifts, once missed, so rarely reappear.

Take the time to be nourished and restored –
the broken angry heart, the desiccated soul,
gnawing in the stomach that can’t be ignored.
It’s the moments of joy that make us whole.
