Someone said
we were not designed
to do this

To move great distances
in little time spans
that our bodies were all in
but our souls were left behind.
It certainly feels that way
several time zones away

And really it would be great
if I could have a moment
a day
a week
to let my soul catch up.

My body,
it only knows that I can sleep later
in a strange place
with new noises
and odd lighting.

But the soul
wants to sit
and breathe the breath of stillness
and discover what that smells like here.
