Time

It moves forward
every second clicking by,
not one faster than the other,
yet sometimes it feels so.

Time,
you remind me to slow down.
I notice how fast the years have done by,
specifically the last five,
but I have learned to stop.
Not you, time,
but me.

Stop,
capture the moment
or moments,
breathe deep
and imprint them on my memory,
where they stay,
forever.

Time,
you will never stand still, or
slow down,
but I can slow down,
soak up this life,
here, right now,
even as you
keep clicking by.

  2. yes! time stops for no man but i believe that slowing down, sinking in, soaking it up will certainly slow it down :)

  3. This is the way I see my days. To stop and breathe deeply and create - always creating :0) mari

    I journaled on "time" this morning. I think slowing down might just be the solution to my dilemma of feeling like time goes by too quickly. xo

  5. A really lovely post for the days after the holidays when everyone has been so busy. Winter is the perfect time to slow down and reflect.
