Schedule Me Some Relaxation

People all across the nation
talk about their relaxation
catching up on TV shows
baking cookies and eating dough

Netflix Disney all the rage
when I find time I turn the page
but that is usually when
it’s time to sleep and sleeping wins

Now make no mistaking this
I find the time for walking bliss
but when it comes to relaxing
my day’s are full of many things

Nonetheless this lesson’s true
always take some time for you
even if it’s helping other souls
being good to yourself is an important goal

Today’s Prompt was to write a relaxation poem. Hope I did it justice!


Every Beat

Every Beat

Every drum beat
as the trumpet cries
to my soul
keeps my pulse in rhythmic flow

Stopping short for the moments
which take my breath away
and flowing with the rhythm
tapping my feet in time

As my shoulders move
dancing in my seat
throbbing heart of joy
pleasures at the beats

This is what music does
capturing rhythm in my soul
enriching heart flow
taking my breath away
and bringing it back
