Speed - April Poetry Prompt 1

Because doing a Slice every day in March just wasn't crazy enough... Several of my Slicing friends are working on writing poems based on the prompts from "Bud the Teacher" <---Check out the link for his first prompt.

Here's my attempt to respond to it - April 1st.


Speed

Move, move, move.
Fast, faster, step on the gas
Places to be, things to do

Breathe, take a moment to
Savor
    each succulent bite
                inhale
                    the fragrance of a new blossom
                caress
                    your newborn’s cheek

The highway of life will wait
                A moment longer.
