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.
