Slow Saturday

I have been taking it so slow today
that I just saw a snail pass me.
Sometimes that is just
the thing
to do.
Take it slow.
Breathe in,
relax.
Have your favorite tea with cream, of course,
look at your beautiful back yard,
remember your family (which I will be seeing soon),
contemplate the fact that we are ever growing
and changing,
that we have some successes and
that next year we hope to do things better,
that summertime is ahead with
weddings,
airplanes,
long car trips,
flowers on the side of the road,
smiling faces to greet us,
open homes,
open marshes,
crashing waves,
homes away from home,
children laughing,
games to play,
sparkling turqoise waters,
español,
lots of español!,
rain drops dripping down long slippery ginger leaves,
love,
mami,
son,
Miami, maybe,
Maunabo, too
daughters,
granddaughters...
sometimes it is indeed time to take it slow...
oops there goes another one.
