The Time – small stone

at 8:09
I notice that
11 minutes seems like
a great deal of
time.

multiplied
many times by
all these rushing people
and squared again by the
sick ones,
biding and
abiding.

Then,
slowed,
by the
lounging dogs.

I’m writing small stones as part of the January Mindful Writing Challenge. Feel free to join us.

    I get the sense (and have felt it myself) that sometimes a slowness of time is excruciating and at other times, restful. Your stones are very meaningful to me. Thank You.

      Thank you. Sometimes I have ALL day to get something done, and I can’t seem to fit it into my day. Then sometimes I grab a few minutes and seem to get a pile of things done in that time. Odd, isn’t it?
