Don’t Waste Too Much Time on Reality

digital illustrationRestorative Dreaming

A pensive morning in quiet shade

Of this is inner contentment made

A sip of silence, a moment’s rest

In the garden corner I love the best

With butterflies skimming the border’s blooms

Voile curtains billowing out of rooms

A book of poems upon my lap

Read in short bursts between nap and nap

And the sound of a bicycle coming near

To bring the post of love-letters here

I’d rather recline in this reverent haze

Than waste on reality any daysdigital illustration

  1. Oh, this is lovely in all ways, Kathryn … and the best advice I’ve heard in a long time.

    ‘I’d rather recline in this reverent haze
    Than waste on reality any days’

    I think you just convinced me to take a nap, Kathryn! XO
