At midday on a school day, I stopped for a moment by the harbour.
Light and hope have met Sun and sky have embraced My heart moves with joy My spirit flies like an eagle Soaring above the situation With perspective and insight. Returning to ground, my feet placed firmly, I look out at Sydney's storied harbour, See the swaying ferry, moored unusually I notice the city skyline with its reaching tips Seeking after greatness, extending into cloud And for a single moment of stillness I am satisfied, grateful, lifted up And the to-do list can wait. I am here for the wind on my cheeks I am here for the music in my ears I am here for a break from noise and needless interruptions by task and pressure. Waiting on the lunchtime bell I discover, I enjoy, I pause.
