Put the phone down
Turn it off
Let it go
The urging to look at it

One more picture
One more message
One more like
One more connection

Go deeper
Be still
Don’t reach for it
Imagine life without it

Send a letter
Express your desire
Ask to be held
Quietly

Let down your guard
Receive
Give
Let compassion in

Savor
The hand in yours
The soft eyes holding
Yours

Be still
Awaken
Nothing to do
No one to be

Honesty
Surrender
Pleasure
Comfort

Delight
Sweetness
Collision
Dazzle

Grace
Quiet
Splendor
Joy
Ease
