The Importance of Resting

I rest now in my day

a late afternoon siesta

4 pm is a witching hour for me

It used to be drink

then food

that went on until bed

but that led to no good

So now I rest

I read

I think

sometimes I doze

My cats

are my accomplices;

someone’s always happy

to join me

looking for a hand

a cuddle

It’s a sweet time

not an eat time

A rest practice

is an antidote

to overwork

to busyness

another addiction

that kicks in

when the food free-for-all

isn’t a choice
