remind me

Posted on February 6, 2012 at 8:55 PM

there are times

in my wanderings

that i am

asked

to run here,

or walk there,

or climb this,

or hike that.

when all i want to do

is dance.


sometimes, 

in moments

of utmost frustration

or mind-boggling

obstacle,

i want to 

run away,

or hide,

or climb

a tree,

but what i need to do

is laugh.


it happens

on occasion

that i am asked to 

speak

about something

that i love.

and i talk,

and talk,

and talk, 

perhaps instead

of pray.


when i am in pain,

and soothing

is all i want,

i seek balms

and touch,

and warmth

and ease.

what i really need

is patience.


if in some time,

there is movement,

and suddenly 

quiet,

remind me.

remind me

to run

through fields

of warmth and touch

and ease, 

and fall upon

my grassy bed

of patience.

remind me 

to dance,

to laugh, 

and to pray.

I will know something has gone terribly wrong with the world when you must be reminded to dance. :)
