A little time

Just a little time

to stop, breathe, and think quietly today

to dip our toes in the cold Atlantic Ocean

and walk barefoot on warm brown sand.


It flies by so quickly

each day melding and blending toward summer

rain and sun and wind and rain

one more week and equinox emerges


The cat sits beneath my chair on the deck

and the girls scream during a water hose fight

the bugs buzz around the yard

bumblers, mosquitoes, bees, june bugs


The air is deep and heavy and humid

the tress green and brilliant and flowing

the garden springing forth from the earth

on this little time day


I must remember

just a little time each day

to breathe, to be present to the season

to watch nature in her glory.
