Inspiration piece

By Gena Stutzman

be the thorn and the rose.

be the oak and the lilac.

put down your pen

throw away your to do list

and your not to do list.

unlock the door,

walk out of the house,

navigate by touch.

consider the way things feel,

then choose.

you determine the words you’ll keep.

you determine the words to describe yourself.

each glimpse an awakening,

a joyful encounter.

dancing shoes, hiking boots, and bare feet

you choose.

there’s need and time enough for each.
