Poem: A Few Minutes

2013-10-02 Niwot Evening Bike Ride and Sunset (23)

Let me take
Just a few minutes
Of my day
To simply be

A few minutes
Is enough
To notice
To see

A few minutes
To be still
To be full of thanks
Fills the bill

A few minutes
To fully arrive
To feel one with all
To feel alive

Just sitting
For a little while
Transforms a sad frown
Into a peaceful smile


About the poem:
Becoming a more powerful force for good in your life starts with a few minutes every day. A few minutes of peace, a few minutes to remember that all of our problems are small. That all of our problems are simply challenges designed to help us grow. After just a few minutes of stillness, you’ll be bursting with love and gratitude. From that position, you’ll know what to do next.

Put down your book. Turn off the TV. Set aside your computer and your phone. And give yourself a few minutes every day.
