Wheels turning rapidly
Blurred images passing by,
All too brief acquaintances
Forever catching up,
Deadlines, projects, meetings
Rushing about on wheeled things,
Finishing, only to start again,
Is this living?
Stop before it’s too late!
Time to pause, to reflect, to notice
Time to absorb, to learn
Time to indulge, to take, to give, to appreciate
Time to be detached,
Time to rediscover Nature,
The sheer peaceful beauty of trees,
The delightful sounds and sights of birds,
The living tapestry of the transforming sky
Time to treasure all things beautiful,
And live again.
