it happens in small sparks
in fits and stars
in lower case
and late night flights of fancy
in the spaces between breaths
the spaces where there is space to breathe.

it happens when we’re not keeping track
when we’re not counting steps
or calories
or cataloguing productivity
it happens in the quiet moments
in moonbeams
in shadow
in stillness.

it happens in all those other times too
because it can’t not.

like seeds
like trees
like birds on the breeze
every moment we grow
we flow
we evolve into something more than we were
a moment ago.
