MARIE ELENA’S POEM

Inhabiting Moments

There was a day when life moved at the speed of carriage; when intimacy waited for marriage. Evening meals were planned, prepared and, following prayer, shared. 
 
Dim the light. 
Rewrite the greed.
Linger.
Proceed
Gently though the years, before time disappears.

WALT’S LIMIT

SLOW DOWN, YOU”RE MOVING TOO FAST

Up to speed traveling
on the path of least resistance.
Upon his heart’s insistence,
it’s pedal to the metal.
Despite speed bumps, he will
take his lumps and move along.
Don’t limit his progress,
or he’ll plow you down!
