Time Out
for indulging — writing journals
for mending tangibly — movin’ that “bod”
for stimulating the mind — finding witty solutions
for restored gaiety, laughter — telling jokes ‘round the kitchen table
for renewal of friendships — at the club BBQ
for support of children, elders — enjoying board games and hugs
for challenging thoughts — wreaking havoc on “norms”
for especially the bizarre — acting silly, wearing costumes,
and inclusively for renewal of the whole —
through opening the mind.
