Pay attention

to the moments in between

when you’re hanging there suspended

at the top of your breath,

at the top of the roller coaster,

no longer moving up

but not yet falling down.

When you’ve leapt,

your legs dangling free in midair,

gravity not yet pulling you back to earth.

It’s easy to miss,

so pay attention.

pause here.


doing has ceased.

These moments we write off as unimportant

because ‘nothing’ is happening,

and yet without these moments

we would never exhale,

never fall,

never feel that rush in the pit of our stomach.

These moments,

these transitions,

I have a suspicion

are the most important moments we have.

Something big is happening here.
