Whether seeing the world
as fast or slow,
it seems frequently like
a roller coaster
or some dodgem cars
that you can’t escape.

Finding yourself separated,
you’re left to find solace
in a nature conversation
where motion happens
at a slower pace,
at a natural one,
not the human hustle.
Walking at the pace of nature
and sensing this subtle resonance
with Mother Earth
that often seems lost
with our human community’s
world of speed and quantity,
I find myself grounded
in this natural world and Source
of which every life is a part.
So, turning down the youthful tempo
on my inner metronome
and becoming
thoughtfully grounded and old,
noticing my expansive grounding
in this larger revelation of Being.
