Sitting in the park, under a warm shade tree,
closing my eyes to fully be in the moment.
Awakened internally by all of the noises,
from far away and close by.
Locusts communicating throughout the park,
fish jumping throughout the pond,
and ducks splashing during their mid-day baths.
Feeling the tall, thick grass throughout my fingers,
as I scrape the ground to feel the earth and it’s beauty.
Upon opening my eyes I start to truly understand,
what being intentional with your time truly means,
and how it’s important to do so each and every day.
