Just Close Your Eyes
Just close your eyes for a moment
and see what you see ...
Simply let go and slow down
to see what isn't
Surely as the blink of a lid
forgetting was is
Remember what they said
in never as much fun
as playing dead.
Walking along the colorful sidewalks of Marpole, with my son and his young pal, Charlie, is always a bit of spontaneity that I highly reccomend to anyone to set their sail a'spin.
Children know when to wake up and close their shutters ... Nobody has to set an alarm or pinch them to see if they are still alive. They do as they please and watch out .. if they are not.
We all need to play. Our child reminds us of what is real and anything that is not is wrongful to our health and the happiness of our off-spring, better un-sprung, if we choose not to listen to the lesson, possibly again, never to be sung.
My greatest joy is spent walking with my pure and precious little boy. May all Mothers and Fathers benefit as I do, by listening to the rustling of the leaves, smelling the fragrant flowers and blessing the open hearts of the blessed child they are so priveleged to call their own.
