when i stepped outside this morning,
i could just feel something all around me.
i walked down my driveway to the street
just quietly looking and taking it in.
'it feels like i'm in a special sound proof room
or something,' i thought.
everything just seemed to be holding this quiet gentleness.
and i couldn't get over how strongly it was hanging in
the air, and how badly i wanted to soak it in.
i had forgotten how much i love bare tree limbs.
how it's like they're reachin' out to the sky,
trying to touch god.
i had forgotten how when i see that,
it touches something deep inside of me,
and reminds me to reach too.
in my mind, i reached up, and i remembered god.
and i remembered love. and i remembered there was more.
so much more.
and without even thinking a quiet 'oh wow' escaped my lips
and i could hear it come out of me.
it was my prayer this morning.
i needed to remember.
