Wasted Time

Soporific sense
of time being wasted;
hours that trickle
like stream poorly
gated.

Knowing that somewhere
a task to be done;
and guilt may weigh
heavy on jobs not
begun.

But why should we linger
on that not required;
when peace in this moment
leaves mind so
inspired.

Better to ponder on
seascapes and battles;
car crashes, bubbles
and people like
cattle.

Spend this time with me
in sun tainted wonder;
and let’s see what pictures
our minds just may
conjure.

    Wow, such modern thoughts spoken with the language of the regal and refined. And the rhyme! Impeccable. Thank you for the ride. What a well-crafted, disciplined piece of writing.
