It is a hard art to learn,
by palms raised
air shifting location
here and there like
trying to guess the pattern of falling leaves,
and hoping to feel
the soft descent of moments
when silence slips

This is another repost because… well, we’ve been kind of busy.
Our newest grand girl was born Monday.
And our oldest grand girl turned 13 on Tuesday.
In the stillness,
Happy Birthday, Grace
And welcome, Kolbie Brynn King
Welcome to the Still Saturday Community where we pause after a busy week, move in quiet pilgrimage, maybe linger a while in some still place, and soak in the beauty of images and reflect on the depth of sparse words. We’d love for you to join us. Grab the button and link up below. We all love to hear if something especially speaks to your heart, but please don’t feel pressured to comment. Simply take some time to be still together, to gaze long and drink deep.
