There is Something to be said for Old Slowness

There is something to be said

for old slowness.

These days we are all about better living through chemistry

Speed, ease, efficiency.

Economies of scale, productivity, more for less.

And yet,

there is something to be said

for old slowness.

These days we are all about doing more with less,

Undercutting the competition, driving down the cost.

These are necessities, but,

there is something to be said

for old slowness.

Some things take time.

Embryos gestate times nine.

The moon cycles.

My loves body is punctuated with periods.

Seasons come and go.

The sun rises and sets.

There is no hurrying some things of great value and substance.

There is something to be said

for old slowness.
