Sometimes You Need To Hold Your Breath

There are moments
in front of us
that we miss with a single breath.

It is gone
before we even realize
it was there.

If we could learn to hold our breath
~ look a little closer ~
and see the little things we keep missing.

I've been wishing for the snow
to be gone for so long now.

I forgot to sit back
to look at and appreciate
what's in front of me at the moment.








I hope you take time
to see what's in front of you.

Perhaps
~ like me ~
you have been
missing something.

Beautiful macros, the snowflakes really stand out on the red. Photography, especially macro, has a way of getting us to see the details. I love your header.

Just think of all that we (I) have missed all through the years by not 'stopping to smell the roses' enough... I am much better at this now that I'm older--but when I was younger and raising 3 sons, I never had time to enjoy much of anything. Life can be hectic sometimes.

Great post, Catherine.
Hugs,
Betsy
