The Art of Loving Slowly


Please love me, she said,
Just very slowly.
A softly whispered plea, a plan.

Please serve me love in a wineglass.
A tender bouquet, a sip,
A memory to be savored.

Let's explore the drawn out moments,
A stroll through kairos time,
Faces close, in quiet conversation.

Let's dance, but a slow dance,
Move gently to the music,
The music of slow fire.

Let's speak in poems
Measure words and rhythm,
And many layered meanings.

Let's linger over details,
Build dramatic tension,
The sensory unwrapping
Of a precious gift.

We can only do this once,
So let's become experts
In the art
Of loving
Slowly.
