Slowing Down Life’ Rhythm

I have had to slow down to adapt to daily life’s rhythm,

With little focus on success and failure, or enthusiasm,

With less stress on disturbances constantly.

I feel obliged to follow the rhythm of the body,

To achieve the melody of the mind smoothly,

The heart and soul’s harmony

To create the synchronisation of my life hopefully.

Steadily and harmoniously.


I feel that the flow of love in poetry

Sharing, discussing, and learning avidly,

Are all leading to much beauty and flow gradually,

Despite the pandemic ravaging,

Taking such a heavy death toll devastating.

Surely, will disappear in the bottomless abyss everything,

Sometime for everybody,

To bring balance, order and harmony.
