Hurry!

André Derain, Vue de Cassis, 1907.jpg

‘Hurry!’

Quickly!

Rush

to cancel

my overbooked calendar.

I have

an important meeting

with the trees,

to discuss

entirely unnecessary topics.

Race

to remove

my afternoon obligations.

The ocean called

and she needs

to speak to me

on an urgent matter.

Scramble

to remove

my endless to-dos.

The sunshine

is demanding promise

of a crucial deliverable

that requires

my immediate attention -- 

to never hurry

again.
