The Pause

I haven’t written for long
Too many concerns
Too little time
You know how it goes.
I finally made a pause
How did I do it? Don’t know
But everything looks still now
So silently inspiring.
I took a pen out
Started writing on a slip of paper
Without paying attention to verse
Or any literary form whatsoever.
Happy to get back to old habits
To speak my mind freely, undisturbed
What! The phone is ringing!
“Sssh! You will wake the baby!”
Too late.
And… pause again.
