NaPoWriMo 2021 – Poem #10

Sloth

Is sloth truly such a dangerous sin?
Staring at a creature by this namesake
I can’t help but feel pity, wonder,
an utter amazement at the slow purposeful
movement – such a subtle conservation of energy.
All efforts focused on this present moment.
Is there not a diligence in this?

NOTE: This poem is inspired by a prompt from Kelly Russell Agodon – write a seven-line poem about one of the 7 Sins that only contains seven words in each of the lines.
