A Rather Lazy Day (from "Of Other Things:)

Felt a little lazy
So I rested today
Cancelled an appointment
with an old friend
Took lozenges and
many cups of green tea with honey
Tomorrow back to the old grind
So I decide to
take the time
to write an ode
Isn't it nice
to pour our feelings and thoughts
onto the blank page
In this technological age
Pen and paper
still have their place
in the midst of the frenetic race
for money and love
Perhaps someone
Out there in the darkness
Will read this and decide to a
Write an ode themselves
The mind can reach other minds and
The soul can reach other souls
After the carnage
There is still much to say
Your words can
Show others the way
And like honey form the hive
We need careful words
To stay alive
