I’m Sorry & Slow Down

I’m Sorry

I couldn’t help it.
I have taken your picture down
from the Fridge.

You loved that picture,
I didn’t. Not at all.

You’re probably mad,
Just remember,
I’m sorry.

I replaced it with this.
This poem.
Just remember.
I’m sorry.

Slow Down

Rushing And
Shouting Of
busy Life.
Loud Noises
Waking You
from any sleep.

Rushing sounds,
But only of water
in the distance.
Distant chirping
or patting of feet on snow
