Slow Pace


a quaint old town i pass in my commutes
lined with cafes and rickety-stores
slow life thrives in its cobbled stones,
tantalizing me with its hidden tones
half a mile of this utter bliss, teases
my mind to explore more, corners
where he knows me -and i know him
no one remains a stranger for long.
if i could stop and blend in,
gossip and smiles would welcome me in.
i long to savor and drink in
sites and sounds i once knew, flourished in.

Something that I can identify with ... the slow train chugging into the city... with the memories closing in.

Loved those lines best. The whole thing was gorgeous though. You perfectly described so many little towns that I've passed through.
