There was a moment where my thoughts dissolved into the place where the sky and the treetops met; seeking no answers but a moment to observe the melding of the two
And in those few minutes, I wasn’t digging or clawing or asking for anything; I was just me, a human with a beating heart, watching in awe the movement of the earth around me
And in those few minutes, my dog was napping, beside me
And in those few minutes, everything was as it should be
Just as easily as she slipped in, she retreated and we danced like this
(You know those moments where you feel so full of life and you don’t want to move and spoil it? But you have to?
That’s the gift.)
