An Invitation to Honor the Moment

An Invitation to Honor the Moment

Listen to the whisperings of the wind.
Listen to the murmurings of your heart.
But if you cannot comprehend what they are telling you,
come to my house and I will make you a cup of tea
and we will just sit in deep silence to honor the moment
until we part ways without saying goodbye.

    An invitation to tea, to listen to the wind, to hear and honor the moment in a heart-beat. I will accept and listen with you. Lovely post Virgilio.
