Slowing Again to See

The seasons take their time for us,
Though we haven’t time for them.
With pedals down and hackles up
We steamroll what they tend.

Do we know to slow down a piece,
For some short episodes?
To humbly shake our sodden fleece
And the sad brevity it bodes?

We do, I say- and so do they,
Picking lightly through the patch.
A season’s patience in one day.
An eternal instant we can catch.

  1. Perfect. And I will say that we do know how to slow down a piece for more than a short while. We’ve made a very concerted effort this year to take some time to enjoy what we work so hard to have – our house, our yard and the joys large & small that they bring to us.

    I highly recommend.
