Declaration Of Deceleration - Poem by Sonny Rainshine

It’s the quotidian actions,
the everyday things,
like taking the extra time
to buy fresh beans
from the local market,
wash them in crystal-clear
spring water, shell them,
slow-cook them with
with herbs that smell
of paradise and green
meadows in summer,
that halt the breakneck
struggle to finish first
before the race
has even begun.
