Slowdown (Image: KL Caley)

With the petrol heads

ignoring the policeman’s signs

to take their foot off the accelerator

Mother Nature decided to intervene

What’s the rush ?

she asked by the roadside

spreading a bit of colour

in the grass by the tarmac

The seeds took their time

and eventually, after the clouds

gave them a drink

they popped up to see the sun

Mother Nature’s Motives ?

quite simply achieved

the petrolheads would slow down

to see the pretty flowers
