Life Lacking Purpose - May 21, 2022

you know the feeling

Friday afternoon’s subtle lift

last day of the week

last minute of work


but to a tree

what is a weekend?

or to an ant, a holiday?

or dolphin, a day off?


how interesting

it would be to hear

each of us explain

to any of them

why we like to

turn off the paths

we travel on


escape life for awhile


not only for the benefit

of their understanding

but for our own
