In the busy-ness of the day,

it is difficult to gain the solace

of silent, mindful inactivity


Life’s persistent contradiction

is to slow the pace


It is anti-social

to disengage,

to silence

the constant buzz

of social media


Our essence dissolves

in the miasma of industry


The deliberate choice

to be unhurried,

to allow earth

to enlarge our view,

to sweeten perception,

to enliven dulled pores,

to rejuvenate spirit


Brings the possibility,

to surrender to the space

Let the rocking boat still




becomes a tryst of vivacity


The day enlarges
