I’m okay to sit back now
A pedicel observing the bouquet
Of all the works accomplished
All the arts displayed
Paintings repolished
Why even the arrangement
A spray of delight
No need to chase after my
Dreams in the night
What was once upon twenty
Is no longer the bounty
When conversation on a
Front porch swing
Is more charming
Than a stadium cheering
All my life what I wanted
Name in lights
To be someone
Is resting in solace
Knowing we are this anyway
All along more than enough
Out of all of the needs
I’ve accomplished these things
Now to quietly hammock
And watch them
Grow up to be
Like a garden of seeds
Planted over a lifetime
Finally watering
Comforting blossoming
Casually harvesting
Watch the willow of tomorrow sway
Relaxing in a holiday
Of achievements
No matter how small
The stars and a cup of tea
What a lawn chair can be
With echoes of locusts about
Orchestrating simplicity
Isn’t that the beauty
Of every such manifestation
The fruit of our trees
Standing proud in a lovely okay
