Forgotten Sunsets

huge sunset on ocean

Seldom seen sunsets
moon peaking on the horizon
with no one to watch its arrival
trails overgrown
berries unclaimed
we hunch in airless cubicles
corporate slaves
whose families seldom see.

Are we here only to work
for dwindling pay
and more demands?
Have you shown your child
the Milky Way
a rabbit hole
how to fish with
a long cane pole?

Stop and smell the flowers
feel the breeze across your cheek
go swimming in the creek with your children
savor life, live simply, work less
for in the end, we regret more
what we didn’t do
and never that we
didn’t work more.
