poem

Effort

The push to action

to conquer distraction

waits in the background

thoughts of the mind

The energy summoned

is slow in coming

to create a tangible

sentence defined

Life in slow motion

gives credence the notion

to beauty of words

and the will to be kind

Desires are fleeting

each one a chance meeting

to grasp and enjoy

till it starts to unwind

Engage in exchanges

of ideas in stages

built from the depths

where a spark you will find

Don

Don, that is so beautiful, wistful.
It is sweet and sad.

This garden of words is honored
to have you growing here.
