The Benefits of Being Still

Sitting

keeping your distance
as he flies a kite
for the very first time
holding tight
to the string
for some
such a little thing

for you

the kind of normal
you only get to taste
every once in a little while




















effortlessly
he outruns the wind

unknowingly
filling you with love
and light
as you try to capture
his essence
through a lens



















Sometimes
the very best thing
about being on the sidelines
is having a front row seat

quietly watching
as some of
God's
greatest gifts
are
hard at work

giving you reason
to believe
kite flying
is better
from
here
