Savor the sweet taste of simply being,
Indulging in the luxury of rest,
X-ing out the voices that complain
That doing something useful might be best.
Yet what could be more useful and more freeing?

Feel the quiet ecstasy of seeing.
Open up a room within your breast,
Untenanted but for a silent guest,
Returned because you are alone again.
