“Two o’clock p.m.
The clock has let me know
I owe it for last week.
I’ve been punching in and out so much
My card is losing its heartbeat...

I underestimate the freedom You have given
in the open bars.
For life and love to play its course
inside the measure
of Your breaking arms

and rest, two, three, four...”

Lovely. And guilt is so often a prerequisite for my pauses. selah I now relieve tonight's idleness of my guilt.

Love as always the visual aspect of your blog - so inspiring to be creative.

Beautiful, as always. I love the 'variations' in your "pauses".
