Pause

We rush and fuss
fret and plan
pushing to get through,
what should be
savored

It's not about
all those tasks we do
the musts and shoulds
over which we've
labored

In all the hustle
We miss the message
A world was changed
by the King of Kings.
The greatest gift:
Reconciliation, now
enabled.

If you haven't seen the flashmob food court Halleluiah Chorus, please take five minutes to savor this beautiful celebration of the birth of the King.  Then head on over to One-Shot Wednesday for more poetry from a variety of writers.  Write your own and link up!

What we must cherish, we ignore... and what we can ignore, we cling to! (sigh)..
