for life

there is time

for sunrises
and sunsets

time enough
to take a glimpse
up at the slow
changing of the skies

we can wake
we can breathe
we can look beyond
our looming busy-ness

we owe our selves
a little joy
some quiet
some peace

our eyes deserve
sunlight
moonlight
candle-light
rest

if your fingers seek
guitar strings

if your mind flows
toward poetry

if your lungs long
for forest air

if your skin yearns
for desert warmth

there is time

find it
make it
steal it

you
deserve it.
