Even Standing Still

from Reset To Factory Specs by Leslie Hudson

about

Memory: I hadn’t left the house in days, but she went out and I went with her. Looking up intently, she was transfixed by what she saw and something in me woke.

Lesson: Beauty is everywhere, if only you will see it.

lyrics

My window on the world
Is anchored to this spot
I'm used to driving distances
Across the map from dot to dot

Now when I look up
There's a ring of cedar trees around the sky
Ever constant, ever changing
As am I

Even standing still

Sundown and stepping out
To touch the grass and breathe in
She looked up
So I looked up

As 50 crows flew overhead
So silently I would have missed them
Otherwise

Wingtips tipped in vibrant orange light
Leaving me to bask
In the afterglow of crows' flight
Wingtips tipped in vibrant orange light
Leaving me to bask
In the afterglow of crows' flight

Even standing still
Even standing still

Hawks and moths and butterflies
Finches, jays and lullabies
Vultures riding thermals high
Hawks and moths and butterflies
Finches, jays and lullabies
Vultures riding thermals high

Even standing still
Even standing still
Even standing still
Even standing still

All is flux and so am I
Even standing still while I
