Doing Nothing is the Best Medicine.
snowflakes in april
a black jumpsuit
tied tight round my waist
saturday, the best day.
spaciousness leaks from the stems of 8am
time is my time again
curiosity sweeps through
doing nothing is the best medicine
my favorite antidote to busyness
to seep inside the tender strings of the moment
and let the page carry me
and further out there
bolted from my ordinary skin
into the shimmering blues and yellows
of the sky
with cosmos in my necklace
meandering through city streets
dancing on the saturn-like rings of my heart.
imagination in full swing.
it fuels every bone in my body
the shivery, dry spaces wake up
weary numbness replaced
here, there is no such thing as boredom
only fresh surrealist landscapes
stacked up in wild bouquets —
oh yes, the possibilities
