A foggy cove near the ocean

if you need to slow
your hurried pace

here is your permission
to take a break

and have a listen
to your heartbeat’s gentle needs
to your body’s tired knees

weary from all the rushing
there’s something here

in the midst of all the busy
asking for slow
throwing the show
out the window

making peace
with the clock’s soft ticking
