Poem: Off Sick

Off Sick

by June Nash

.

is it that I’m really sick

sometimes these damn flus will stick

or basking in the excuse

flagrant use of time abuse

.

spend days on a soft settee

writing, reading, watch tv

worst is over, on the mend

if not sick still, I’ll pretend

.

life continues when I stop

when to duty I not hop

think I’ll spend a few more days

in this quiet slow paced haze

.

I came down with the flu.  Started coming on Christmas day.    In so much pain, didn’t have to decide whether or not to post my poem.  Just didn’t post.

Now I am back, but taking it easy.  Enjoying the slow pace that comes after all holiday obligations are met.  Until I was on the mend, I didn’t realize what a guilty pleasure it was to sit around the house all day, not doing anything of importance.  

I wish all my readers a wonderful year filled with opportunities and the courage to take advantage of at least one.
