PEACEFUL EASY FEELING
(5/22/17)

I remember
as a young man
lying
in the grass
of a park

watching
the world

the sky

wondering
at my place
in the
universe

for hours

with little
concern
for getting antyhing
done

in these
latter years

when such
repose
is most needed

time spent
idle
feels frivolous

there are
so few calendars
left to turn

some
inner prod
of urgency
propels me
into action

admittedly
most is movement
for the sake
of movement

to get
out

about

while I still
can

to enjoy
my simple
motor
skills

to attain
an adjusted
calm
in activity

since
being inactive
simply seems
a prequel
to death
