So I Paused

I was returning to work.

I stepped out of my vehicle.

And floating in the air

Winding it’s way between buildings

Washing in waves over trees

I heard it.

The notes of the symphony playing, live.

And I thought

How lovely.

And what a treat.

So I paused,

As I should have.

I believe the surprise joy of it

Was better than having planned to go hear it.
