Slowingly

 

Time races by

Like a child

Run amok

 

Splashing at puddles

Wishing for luck

 

I anticipate

Cells slowing

As they will

 

Urgency and dread builds

Then dissipates

 

I search for breath and breadth

To fill me

 

With presence and peace

 

Not so pressingly

Now

 

As I am slowed

And then I weep

 

With joy

 

For the deep

Anxious pleasures

Surrounding

Me
