Sitting At A Red Light On Route 8 Northbound Just Outside Peninsula, Ohio

Take an empty moment
and don’t bother to fill it,
don’t throw it out or kill it
just let it be as is –
Take an empty moment
and pace a little while,
until the angle and the light
align, perhaps, just right –
and there you’ll see it’s true:
emptiness is worthwhile, too
