Sunday Sonnet!


So driven by the need to get things done
That minutes of the day like lightning pass,
So speedily the sands of Time seem gone,
Sunken into a swirling, wild morass,
All efforts wrought with meaningful intent
Often performed at person’s grievous cost,
Appears to be vitality misspent,
Issuing in a sense of being lost;
With care, perceive the beat of Nature’s heart,
Which panders not to every fleeting whim,
Nor frets at whatsoever might depart,
But hums her pre-ordained consistent hymn;
Serenity descends on those who wait,
She nourishes profound contented state.

  7. wow I swear you wrote this with me in mind. My weekend can be summed by your exquisite poem. Time passed too fast for me so I toiled late into the night and now I am at work with one eye open! Still I got a lot of great writing and editing done and I walked 17 miles 🙂 so I’d say I accomplished a lot. Still, there were a dozen things I had not time to pursue 😦 I hope your weekend was productive!
