In Dreamland All Week

Updated on August 15, 2011

Doing Nothing Became My Instant Routine

For one week I have nowhere to be

You might find me relaxing under an old oak tree

I didn't have to fight the traffic

Instead I turned up the music and caused a small racket

The weather was beautiful no need for a sweatshirt or light jacket

The day starts when I got out of bed no matter how late it is or what the time said

I walked and talked about my dreams that I have loved for so long

Laughing often and setting my mind free

Once in awhile picking up a book or playing with the cat gingerly

Where true happiness is playing chase that rubber mouse or catching that bird outside the window

With no phone calls to make and picking tomatoes is my biggest task

I didn't have to cook or go to any appointments

Some days I stayed in my pajamas till noon

Other times I was dressed but I didn't leave the house

I didn't miss what all my co-workers were busy doing as I had another day of leisure

I watched a little t.v.and then I went from store to store looking but with no interest to buy

Way too lazy to go into my pockets and pay

So there was nothing to carry away

All my troubles were temporarily put on hold until one week has passed

Let other people deal with the problems at work

For I am busy laying in the sun drifting off to a nap

Each day was a private party that danced in my head

One of rest and what other people don't see or feel

Bringing my body to a new relaxed state

If I wanted a snack I got up and poked around each cabnet

There I found things that would fill my craving or desire

Everyday seemed extra long

Each moment I filled with wonderful thoughts and star power

Now approaching the midnight hour

Where all my excitement began over one hundred and sixty eight hours ago

I will try to make one more smile last

Now that was so much fun I wonder why I didn't do it way back when
