What’s so good about being fast? Sometimes a little patience goes a long way, and a slow thing can be both lovely and just what you need.
Slow walks, slow thoughts and slow afternoons in the sun all provide inspiration for the poets in Slow Things, an anthology which celebrates taking life at a leisurely pace and casts a spotlight on slow processes and passage of time.
Ageing and decay progress with soothing, even reassuring inevitability and the poets invite us to see beauty in the stillness of the night and the ooze of a snail trail.
