I have decided, because I am smack dab in the middle of applying for part-time jobs on line and organizing my thoughts for same, that I would publish one of my poems today to tide you over, as it were, until I can get some real 'meat' out there. Hope that's OK with you.
This one, written June 14, 1982, was composed by me while I was on vacation in Puerto Vallarta. The title is as above.
Here I sit -- amidst the noises
Of surf, music -- big girls & boyses.
My heart is light ... no cares or woes,
Happiness & contentment reach right to my toes.
I am at peace. This is why I came ...
To rest -- relax -- enjoy life's game.
Work, worry, stress -- all seem far away.
I'm in Puerto Vallarta, & here to play
A little bridge & get a lot of sun,
To sleep late, & have some fun!
To let my mind & body go
At their own pace ... and slow
Way down. What's my hurry?
Life should not be such a flurry
Of alarm-setting & waking up with a jerk,
Knowing you've got another heavy day at work!
