Being Productive

Most of life, 
I thought being busy 
is not the same 
as being hectic,
and the question 
and answer remain

Then, I thought, 
how does 
being productive fit in?

Choosing productive 
made sense
Yet, who is my judge,
that was time to look up,
look for an angel
to judge from Heaven
I never found one
which strangely
declared me confused,
my first judgement
so arrived

But, when one is hectic,
one is busy,
quite a merry-go-round,
a never ending whirl

Whoops, I know my answer,
I'll look at the blue sky,
Wave at some bird,
Smell some flowers,
do absolutely
nothing at all

Now, I feel productive!
