A slow walk on a fast day

A slow walk on a fast day

when vehicles zoom and fume,

to turn left when the world turns right,

to meandering

in the bird-call park

with the wind-rustle trees.

 

A downturn on the spiral track

where the upward movers climb,

to turn from the chance of a higher plane,

to the dancing

on the sanity path

of sufficiency’s grace.

 

A considered style in the fashion stakes

when the messages call for more,

to lock avarice out when it calls to me,

to frugality

and the simple peace

of less meaning more.
