Time moving at near-warp speed
no time to catch a breath, catch a break,
Ungrounded, unsettled, under water,
surface out of sight, floundering.
Every passing day, passing item checked off
on the way to the next one,
No time to take the side trail, get derailed,
listen to what your heart needs.
Hold your discontent with gentleness,
Be tender with your wavering soul.
Remember, seasons turn,
rush of autumn gives way
to slower, dormant evenings
and a little space to breathe.
Bless your noticing, your awareness,
your yearning for regrounding.
Your longing is a guide, a conduit,
a pathway back to yourself.
