Stream Voices.

I sat beside the stream in selfsorrow

and it spoke:

“Did you expect the world to slow down?

Surely you understand that the seasons wait for nobody.”

Walking out I pondered this,

hand trailing in wet grasses beside the path,

savoring the odor of damp leaves on the wind;

Resolving to expand a few moments

of perfect awareness

into the feeling of a life well-lived.
