Traveling To Dreamland

After an intensely busy day
With much accomplished
It's time to relax

Letting go of tasks undone
Blotting out the nagging chores
Big sigh, Relax

Nothing else to work on today
Feeling pleasure in achievement
Satisfaction in my bones


No longer on the clock
Unfinished tasks are unimportant
Tomorrow is another day

Winding down, muscles relaxed
Enjoying life in the moment
Celebrating the song within

A light breeze tickles my neck
The open window provides ventilation
Evening shadows transmit a quiet melody

Slowly my breathing becomes regular
Little snorts of peace
Grace my lips and affirm sleep.

It is good to be able to set things aside and leave them for tomorrow!

Love your poems.

Especially love "Evening shadows transmit a quiet melody"

That's a wonderful line. I had a little spark of recognition reading that, like I knew exactly what you meant. x

What a peaceful, calming poem. I should read this again before bed tonight. Lovely, TB.

Lori said...

Simply beautiful. I have been struggling with getting to dreamland these days. An over active mind and heart that struggles with letting go. Maybe I should come back and read this before I try going to sleep tonight. :)

Nice new look, TB! I usually have a book in my hand when I fall asleep, then turn over to put it away and turn out the light. I love that feeling.

Very cool...it's even more so when we are able to relax and travel to dreamland.

Dreaming is a great activity in my book. Being able to reach a good level of relaxation is a hard thing for some people. So being able to reach that goal is an accomplishment.
Peace.

I do so wish I could let the undone things wait until tomorrow but dang, I'm just too much of a perfectionist to let it go!!!

The poem is wonderful and just made me want to curl up under my big old shade tree.

God bless and have an incredible weekend!!!
