Pause- Daily Prompt


Pause to smell and

chew your food

Pause and smile 

Pause and inhale the

Fresh summer breeze

Pause and hear your 

Heart beating 

Pause and look in the 

Mirror to appreciate the 

Beauty you see, not 

Because of your makeup 

But because you are 

Fearfully and wonderfully made 

Pause more, pause often 

Pause and hear the silence 

In the room, the sound of the 

Wind blowing and the tiny sound 

Of a pin dropping, a splash of

Water, pause more 

Pause often to hear the 

Sweet silence of nothingness 

Overshadowed by empty

distraction and noise
