Coffee Break!

Ten minutes, that’s all I’ve got.
I rush to my favorite spot.
A wooden bench, in sunlight it glistens.
The wind is a song.  Eyes closed.  I listen.
Birds call.  Squirrels scurry.
Heart slows.  No need to hurry.
My head is light.  My shoulders release.
Back to my desk.  Just needed some peace.

    There’s an intriguing pace in this as I read it – rapid, like a caffeine hit.

    very good, unfortunately where I am pigeons and squirrels may attack if I close my eyes 😉

    Park benches are usually quite unconfortable. I suppose they were not designed with any degree of comfort in mind.

  7. Lovely poem! I love the sense of stolen time, and the bliss of a coffee break.

    I totally can relate to this. Both the coffee and the few minutes away from work, to maintain my sanity throughout the day. Great poem.
