Indeed. Beautiful picture of snowflakes, and a well-timed reminder to stay in the moment. Dancing snowflakes also make me smile. This is a delight! Good luck in the contest!

Well here I am in Vermont waiting to
Take timeto pause,
and watch the snowflake's dance,
and enjoy the present of falling snow

Those words describe the snowflakes journey to the ground beautifully. While we watch it dancing in the air, it is like a pause in time. This is a very well written 3-7-5 poem, and a pleasure to read. Well done and good luck! :)) Sandra xx

This is a fine piece of poetry dear anonymous! The only problem i have with it is the word 'stuff'. I would just say 'that is a present moment'. Or something like that.
Anyhoo, Thank you for sharing!
Good luck!
Blessings and a larger than life hug!

    Rebekka, thanks but I needed to be correct in the syllable count. And anything outside of the present moment, for me, is just stiff LOL

It is a good way to release stress and meet the next day face to face. I love watching the snow fall when I am inside cozy before the fire.
Thanks for sharing. Best to you in the contest.

That is a very well expressed short poem about snowflakes. They are unique crystals that sparkle like stars. Each one is different and that makes them all the more lovely. Thanks for sharing. Good luck!

Dear Mystery Author,
I surely did gain audit enjoyment from reading
"To Just Pause"
One of the good morning thoughts for the for me is always:
Stay present- stay in moment. Each moment will take care of itself- just BE.
That is what your sweet poem brought to mind this morning as I read it.
Thank you for sharing your talents with us.

I like your poem and love the last line.
I can't think of a better-focused ending.
"Present moment stuff" speaks volumes and speaks for several spiritual teachings. Bravo/Brava! as the case may be.
The photo is qute special.
I'm not sure if "To just pause" or
"Just to pause" is better. I generally think starting with a preposition is weaker.
Nice job-

Yep you kept to form, syllable wise.
Living in the moment is actually all there really is..The rest is mind junk.
Kudos, I truly get this. Well done. Cheers
