A Simple Call

Slow and Satisfying

Photo by: cottonbro

Simplicity calls my name so loudly in this world we live in today,

With few things it claims but with much it does say,

How many things does one family need?

Lets leave our screens and go plant a seed.

Lets spend less time cleaning up our stuff,

and be ready for company with a simple pillow fluff,

We could open our home with room to spare,

making friends and late-night coffee if we dare.

I hear the call for a slower life,

filled with lasting soul-work and less 9 to 5 strife.

Lets clear our homes of all distractions,

and become people lovers, full of action.

Simplicity calls my name so loudly in the world we live in today,

as I bask in her, in bed, with my slow morning coffee I lay.
