A decima for Ronovan's Challenge 42: Prompt word Care on the D rhyme line.


In quietude we stand and wait
like Davies hoped the time he dreamt
that patient souls are not exempt
from understanding; celebrate
how looking out can penetrate
such mysteries as doing nowt
but breathing in and breathing out.
So there is time to stand and stare,
eschew a life that's full of care,
bring quietude of self about.

(Note: Nowt is a Northern English dialect word meaning nothing)
