Slow Down, Be Inspired

written by: Gayl Wright



Go outside each day
Notice everything around.
Slow down, be inspired.

Train your eyes to see
Diverse flowers, trees, and clouds
Slow down, be inspired.

Train your ears to hear
Bird songs, insects, rustling leaves
Slow down, be inspired.

Train your hands to feel
Rough bark, soft fur, dripping rain
Slow down, be inspired.

Train your nose to sense
Fragrant roses, campfire smoke
Slow down, be inspired.

Train your mouth to taste
Berries, veggies, garden fresh
Slow down, be inspired.
