In That Moment

In That Moment

A Poem by Skye
"

Take your breaths quietly

"
Shhh
and listen to the silence around us,
moving past us, undisrupted.
The ring that lingers unheard and the gentle
Crack
when words are thrust through it.
Within this silence, our thoughts are loud,
distracting and poignant,
begging our attention toward the ache in our foot
or the uncomfortable stiffness of our back.
The stifled anxiety or muted thirst curling in our belly.
How strange that within this quiet
where voice is unspoken and the
tick tick tick
of day is stilled,
we've learned to listen best.
