Slow Down – Image by KL Caley
For visually challenged writersthe image shows an area of plants with a sign showing 5MPH.

The hour was late and time’s up
Are we prepared to see the light?
Now get ready for a shakeup

We work, we write, we fight or flight
Have some challenges and hindrance
It’s up to us whether we fight

Sometimes too fast for our cadence
Not thinking of priorities
Sometimes too much, we need balance

Time to see the beauties and seas
Time to slow down and appreciate
Hear the birds sing and feel the breeze

The world’s full of love and not hate
In our own way, we should take part
Have we done enough? As we wait

We show the goodness in our heart
Life is compose of day and night
Will they miss us when we depart?

Ready or not we all go through
One day each one will say adieu
The hour was late and time’s up
Now get ready for a shakeup*

* Lauranelle

take time to smell the roses
sweet spring, enjoy life’s offer
relish the air in the azure

be glad we have all the choices
let us not take things for granted
let’s appreciated them as fitted

scent of a rose gives me a buzz
don’t have to be in a hurry
enjoying life that is the key

think of the love and its auras
and what goes around, comes around
kids playing in merry-go-round

take time to smell the roses
for one day we won’t be able
just enjoy it and be grateful**
