We have limited time.
It screams when you lose someone.
Life is short;
make fun of it!
I recall the advice from a counsellor—
Be kind to yourself.
If you want that dress, buy it.
If you need more sleep, lie in.
If you don’t feel like working, don’t.
I was surprised by the last one.
Today I’ve three deadlines.
It’s a blue sky one.
I cycle to the beach
am absolved by a glittering vista
spot a pod of dolphins
threading the waves
