Go Slowly

May 5, 2008
By Catherine Todd, Oak Bluffs, MA

Go slowly
the panic is over
it’s behind us
Listen to all
the birds secrets
Hear a petal fall
Go slowly
feel the warm love
and the chilling
hatred
suddenly you
see every glazed leaf
of every flower
Go slowly
open your eyes
smell the crisp breeze
feel the gentle scratches of the beach grass
as they kiss your calves
and pretend that you have all
the time in the world
Go Slowly
