She's the pause before the verb: silent imagination full of expectation of a what kind of movement

this verb will choose and always a surprise when it comes.

She's the breathe before you speak that moment filled

with a cascade of possibility when everything seems clear

for a second before the words

jumble it all up

She's the hesitation before the doing where the whole future makes sense

in the magic world

before the act a moment when everything fits before rules ruin the dream.

She's the chaos before the plan, the crumple of paper and half ideas, the scribbles and scoring outs before the one that makes sense grows into purpose.

She's the 'before' of everything: the essence of it before it is formed; the spirit of it before it breathes; the nature of it before it is real.

Holy Imagination and lifebreath of all
