A Change of Pace

A Book treat.jpg

This morning began with an unexpected gift

Of time, of peace,

Of a slackened pace.

And those two hours somehow stretched

Encompassing the day,

With breaths

And “Hello, how are you?”s.

Yet in spite of fewer hours

There was magically more time,

More readers,

More dinner and dessert…

And tomorrow’s lunch-making.

More lesson reading,

Unit writing,

College alumni report writing

…and somehow, still more time

For book mail, and a neglected blog

A gingerbread slice of life with a dollop of cream.

What a treat!


I’ve been writing a lot…just not my blog…or my book.
