The world is busy,

hustling, bustling.

Things are always moving

quickly, swiftly.

We rarely prioritize time to slow down,

to breathe, to reset, to ground.

The birds sing all day,

reminding us that the sun is shining.

This is the time to work or play,

to enjoy your day.

Then the crickets and cicadas serenade all night,

telling us the moon is on her way.

It is time to slow down, to rest, to delight.

We can’t do it all at once

so listen to the sounds

of the earth

and she will tell you

where to focus your energy
