Living Well

living simply and
well is easy

ignore the clock
turn everything off

open the doors
and windows

observe tree rodents
gambol and cavort
one limb to another

eat what you grow
discard nothing
save everything

make what you
have last one day longer
each time it is used

keep cherished items
in their boxes

admit stars to
light your room

sleep ‘till dawn
after that everything
repeats itself

dying in hopes
and unfulfilled promises
washing away freely
with your tears
