The Other People

the other people, poetry, poem about taking time for oneself, joys of joel poem
Take Time For Yourself, You deserve it.

Hurrying as the sun sets
Hovering one’s senses
Pausing to open the window
To buy flower from a stranger.

Surprise to discover
We’ve got time for other people
To notice what they offer
Things we don’t remember.

Walking fast on the street
No looking back on quick feet
Until someone asks directions
Other people halt our motion.

No time to taste the cake
We are too busy doing the bake
Until we hear that intruding phone call
We’ve got ample time for other people.

Forgetting to see the rainbows
No time to pause and look for halos
Until the twilight say hello
If only we are the other people.
