In the Moment

Pileated Woodpecker

For many us, our worlds have turned upside down in a matter of weeks. COVID-19 has put us in situations we are not used to. Last week, I took a moment to write a poem that came to me, inspired by a pileated woodpecker.

“In the Moment”

Out the window I spy,

a pileated woodpecker sitting in the tree,

Peck, peck, peck

“But what about the time?”

I think, “No time to see.”

Tick, tock, tick

I stop and realize,

this is where I should be.

Knock, knock, knock

Opportunities, living life,

in the moment, feeling free.

Wishing you, your family, friends, and animals the best in these times, and when possible, enjoy the small moments.
