Island speculations

Though city looms
with all its busyness and haste,
out here the pace is slower, calmer;
more connected to life and death
and yet, somehow, less urgent;
each driven moment balanced by
the need for rest, and restoration.
Is that because we know
we're at the mercy of the wind and tides;
because we've fewer illusions
about the power of our lives
or the importance of our days?
