1 Poem by g emil reutter

Of Consequence

And so it is

      we find ourselves

          in this place


Controlled tic of the clock

    unwavering in its pursuit

        of the next minute, hour

             day, month, year.

Yet, in this era

     of speed of communication

         we slow it down

             each tic of the clock

                  of consequence

Savour each drop of rain

     every fallen leaf

           each blush of flower

                every bird stopover

Relish each touch of hand

        every brush of flesh of lip

             each word exchanged

                  every unruffled second
