took a moment to stop and see peace
delivered before my brown eyes
while walking in the Spring sun — 
breathing is better now.
the world lost its grip
butterflies land
on still paths
winter’s bitter air may frost warm hearts
but there’s a beauty in Spring’s birth
that allows love to replace
verglas souls with fields of
bright, hopeful lilies.
stop; ponder this
miracle — 
new life

Mike is an incredible Writer and we first collaborated on December 21, 2016 in honor of the Solstice. His writing is uplifting and is exemplary in form. I appreciate seeing him around on Medium, I know many of you do too.
