we have to go through the motions when there’s no time
just fit in a minute to play one line.
Humans who know how to schedule time to BE
to look out of the window – enjoy the sun – feel the breeze.
One minute of joy that stretches longer each day
time for work and time for play.
‘Play one line’ refers to a line of music. Piano class often teaches workflow organization because students need to learn how to fit relaxed piano practise into busy daily schedules. This poem will be published at The Relaxed Housekeeper soon.
‘Play’ can be replaced with write or draw, for hobby writers or artists.
