Brain Break (poem #27)

‘But I don’t want to live quickly’,
she thought.
‘Would rather wander and ponder and spend time considering the nature of it all.

But her life is a whirlwind right now.
A never-ending to-do list that her mind makes intense by shouting its demands,
tired out and tense at the end of the day.
She needs a holiday, just for a second.

So she breathes in, and out.
Takes some time in the sun-
looks around, and notices faces shining with fulfilment,
bags under eyes and feet dragging along
but essentially, they are strong-
not muddling through but standing proud-
filled with a sense of what they need to do.

‘And you?’
Her heart asks.
‘Well, I am finding out through you.’
