Rest

Rest

 

2012

Lying

Prone and flat

On the cool lawn,

Verdant verge

Of parkland in inner London.

Forgetting

The bustle and crowd

Just soaking the sun

And feeling held

By the terra turf.

 

2014

Seated

On upper deck

Touching the timbers

Of a vessel

Slowly steaming,

It’s paddle turning,

Upon Mildura waters

Of the Murray River

With birdsong

Harmoniously hovering

Our fore and aft

All sides besides.

 

Today

Reclining

In the armchair

Footrest supporting

The weary legs

While fingers fondle

The touchpad

Forming letters

Into words

That punctuate the white space

And continuing the conversation

Between the speaking and the silence

As the words

Come

To rest.

Daydreaming as a profession

Daydreaming and then, maybe, writing a poem about it. And that's my life.
