decision

The boiling water,
fresh from the whistle,
splashes onto
the black, glass
stove-top,
and I wonder
if I need to slow down,
possibly read a book,
or just stare
into the cool evening
waiting for dusk
to whisper into my ear.

My comments were lost so My ideas what I wanted to say was lost..Any how I would love to slow down...How is the corner of your world can I get chair to slow down over there

Be not like the water that boils and sputters and burns the skin. Preempt that moment with interludes of calm, letting cool clarity sink in. ^_^

Cheers.

Greetings Adrian, or Stan,
There is more inspiration in the dusk of a cool evening than in a book, so yes, read it wisely and listen to its words. Ivan
