Wonder’s Kiss

Let turmoil cease –
Stand in view–filled
space –
Alone.
Allow muscles to gentle,
And breathe.
When the mind
tumbles
and grumbles
with things undone
Press Stop.
When time
nips at the ankles –
brays its passage,
demands its entrance,
remember childhood’s
deaf ears.
For wonder waits to
Kiss your space
with tenderness.
