Need a break
… from the stress of life?
Need a break
.. from the news and threat of war?
Need a break from
… busyness
… anger
… fear
… confusion
… sense of helplessness
… something else?

When that happens for me
… opening my eyes and heart
… seeking beauty around, above, below, within
helps in some way
like these cascading blue pansies in our yard
… with their smiling faces
and open mouths
… singing their sweet
“Welcome Spring!” song.

May renewal come our way
through the gifts of Mother Nature
when it’s “time for a break.”
