Take Time To:
Watch a fly jump about on a floor,
Watch the ants industriously explore,
Watch a loose feather gently descend,
Watch how a breeze makes tall grasses bend,
Watch how the colour of flowers merge and blend,
Hear a honey bee searching for pollen,
Hear the sea gulls’ cry and commotion,
Hear a train leave the station,
Hear the water flow down a drain,
Hear a raindrop on a window pane.
Savour the taste of apple or pear,
Savour the smell of shampoo in hair,
Savour the rare sense of life being fair,
Savour the feeling of being able to care,
Savour the moment of a shared pleasure.
Feel the heat of the afternoon sun
Feel the satisfaction of a job well done,
Feel the sadness of those who are absent.
Feel the delight of giving a present,
Feel the warmth of a hand held tight.
