Stop

Such a collosally beautiful
creation we’ve been dropped in
we should all be at easels
capturing the details of the grandeur
the grandeur of the details

but we’re too busy
with worries and plans
striving to get something
to fry in our pans
too afraid of too many things
we cannot control

Either we know too much
to be happy or we haven’t
yet learned to be sad
still somehow embarrassed
to be caught stopping
to smell the flowers

Too many serious things
to attend to and that
is our tragedy
