Each morning and evening The dog and I walk together Up or down the road. We startle a rabbit Somewhere along the way.
The rabbit bounds away into the woods. JJ wants to follow it. I fumble for my camera.
The rabbit says to me: Slow down. Stay alert. There are treasures nearby If only you will pay attention.
Be present right now. Stop multitasking. Take five deep breaths And say a prayer of gratitude.
This moment Every moment Is a gift.
