Garden Whispers

I was always praised for being fast and efficient –
At work, at school, walking, even going pee
Go go go go 
Get married, have kids, buy a house –
Get it done.
Then I stepped into the garden and all I kept hearing was slow down.
This was very irritating.
I’m better when I’m fast
More worthy and certainly more valuable.
But then, 
The wheelbarrow tipped over and I accidentally pulled out a row of beets
I thought were weeds.
Slow down she whispered
Slow down 
Slow down
Slow down
