When did this start?
When will normality
Is this the price
Of years of hard work
Maybe I should just sweep roads

What good is a day
What good are muscles
What good is a fence
against the flood?
What good is will
within a lock?
Somewhere there’s a key
that will open
The prison that holds fast
The waters will part
The mountain will fall
Infinity will be
just a spark
In response to my daily prompt Muscle
#DailyPrompt, #amwriting, #postaday
Modern life is frantic – filled with demands and crammed with stress.
We forget to tend to the mind – the part of us that has to deal with it all – balance all the spinning plates.
What if we could take a holiday each day – just a short one – a few minutes, half an hour – whatever it takes. Everyday.
Well, there’s a way.
Read a poem, absorb it – explore it, let it take you somewhere else. Think about other thoughts for a while.
And I have some – 365 in fact – one for each day for a whole year.
Check it out – give it a go and give your mind some R&R
