Quiet Stillness

Sitting by the river on a lazy summer's day

watching the water roll by with nothing much to say

Ponder the universe for empty hours

Let go of the stress, let go of the dour,

negative thoughts that usually fill your head,

let go of the past; let go of stupid things you've said

Now is the time to look forward, not back

As heat waves shimmer, there's no need to "yak, yak, yak!"
