Down Tools

The trees have got lazy these past days

Last week they violently pushed air along

Now their limbs reach out static and lifeless

Or droop down, spindly branches hang long

It’s much better when they choose to do this

Being outdoors is a fantastic treat

Sun beats down, birds sing sharp and tuneful

As I doze into daydreams so sweet

Time Out

Attenuated hearing

Visage vignette by water

Eyes closed retina red perception

Every breath now at the fore

Submerged in a perfect fit

Warmer than surface surroundings

Resultant weight balanced

Supporting hands luxuriate

Pulse prominent behind ears

Each beat beguiles

Instilling, increased inertia

Rest here, Stay here
