For a child an hour forever
Week an eternity a year life’s endeavor
Growing older opposite true
What took patience in no time through

Getting near a date with fate
Time quickens near a pearly gate
Like gravity falling toward the ground
Closer to impact faster hurtling down

Initial knee jerk of most
Push faster never miss a toast
Helter-skelter place to place
Never slow embracing grace

Here there to outrun
Quantity dilutes deeper fun
Perhaps turn step aside
Off the treadmill slower ride

Savor taste each bite
Enjoy flavors travel light
Wake up on the other side
Clarity a graceful ride

Are you tasting life or moving too fast?

What do you want to savor and how can you do that?
