Garden Patience

While tomatoes ripen, I grow a smaller urgency,

there are things to do, but it is as a butterfly,

flit between the leaving, stay inside the eaves,

pause for the length of a breath in,

let go activity on the out,

take a comma every line,

patient growth to do decline,

for a hallowed slowly on,

flowers go faster,

for none but the absentminded bees,

thus a seated or feeted ramble,

might accomplish much,

by doing less.
