Today’s Resolve

Today I resolve to listen

To sleep when it begins to pull

To sunlight’s contagious beckoning

To the pause before the words unfold.

Today I promise to respond

To my needs often placed on hold

To tears if they choose to well up

To the stories that must be told.

Today I hold myself accountable

To stop revisiting the themes of old

To stay present in this beautiful hour

To the wonders of life we behold.
