Taking a Break

Taking a break

While I sit and read


I get up from the chair

A comfy place

To look out a window.

What do I see there?

The Truth, Reality

What’s in front of me

Plants and trees


With images from my mind.

Images of me

Just as I am

Just as I was

In a photo

Of how I would wish to be


Images of Past Present Future

Leading me to where I am

Where I’m at

Peace with myself and Nature

No longer counting days

Taking a break.

From the hurly burly

Of my thoughts

and aspirations


Of a future not caught

On camera.

For the future cannot be captured

Or seen

In a dream

Nor in the negative

of the film-like scenes

Running through my mind.
