far from the cares
of everyday life
away from the sorrows
away from the strife
sitting together
on a distant shore
watching the tide
washing in
washing out
as the sun descends
and the stars appear
breathing in
breathing out
being mindful
just being

The image shows two lego mini-figures sitting on pavement. Batman has an ice cone and Superman has an ice lolly!

  1. Such a good message of taking breaks to be mindful. I feel that sometimes life can be packed with “to do” lists that it’s really important to take breaks like this. And that’s a fun photo to pair with your poem 🙂

  2. I guess even the super heroes need to take a break… ice cream on the beach with a peer is better than eating ice cream alone in your cave or fortress of solitude. Sometime you just need a friend who understands the stress of the job!
