slow down, mother earth, slow down

once upon a time
in the land that we know
the world slowed down its spinning

instead of a day
to completely revolve
a month was needed to rotate from end to beginning

the dark of the night
now lasted two weeks
without a new sunrise or sunset

but stargazing time
was most popular now
with constellations you couldn’t forget

new quick growing seeds
somehow developed
that could grow with just two weeks of light

bedtimes for the children
just got too confusing
but we had just one time zone and that sounds just right

One thought on “slow down, mother earth, slow down
