Wildflower Meditations

Slow down, or you'll miss it

The rhythmic sound of footfalls on the walk

The whirring buzz of cars flying past

The sound of voices rising and falling as they talk

A world rushing--for me, much too fast

But my eyes are looking all around

Taking in the beauty of the day

And if they chance to sweep across the ground

You'll likely see me pause before going on my way

To crouch closer, a camera adjusted now to zoom

On tiny petals in every tone and hue

Bright pops of color bursting into bloom

A meditation that feels made for you.
