Time Out

My to-do lists have grown appendages
are teaming up in a huddle
plotting their next play

Wait a minute, Guys! I plead
the afternoon sun has caught me
at just the right angle,
and my chair,
with a mind of its own,
is reclining…

Can’t we save the game day antics
for another time…

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Everybody needs a time off. Unfortunately we were taught that time out was a punishment not a cooling off period, a time to refocus and enjoy the peace of time out. I’m glad we can revisit time out and enjoy the tranquility that it offers.
