the cool ocean breeze flutters
around my sun burned ears
bringing the sound
of children’s playful laughter closer
then pushing it slowly afar
as if
an accordion being played skillfully
by the frothy waves


house chores can wait
cooking can wait too
let’s all curl up in bed
on such a rainy day
put on jazz
or a piano concerto
let the world fade away
snooze till daybreak
