The Pause

Even a poem has a pause.
A place to taste a word or phrase,
a pull-off to take in a view,
or grow accustom to a thought.

It is the comma,
the period,
the exclamation point,
…the requisite punctuation.

We pause at important places,
the emphasis essential,
or lost
because arrival was too important.

About Mary Herbert

I am a gentle listener, a woman of few words. My journey through life has been a spiritual one, as well as a physical one. My daughter, Katie, and I thought it would be interesting to combine some of our giftings/talents in a blog and see what happens. Let us know what you think!
