The Journey

DSC_0006smGive thanks for the air
The water
The soil
The vegetables in the garden
The fabric
And the needle
And the thread

Take time
To watch bees
To drink tea
To listen
To laugh at bad jokes
To write awful poetry
To admire weeds
And talk over the back fence

Do not be in a hurry
To get where you are going.
One day
You will find yourself there.
Perhaps unexpectedly.
And then it will be too late
To enjoy the journey.
