Take Time Out

L one(ly) days need not be gray
O ffer yourself time away 
V isit the ocean blue
I ntrigue yourself with a sunset hue
N ature in her beauty can cure
G iving the soul a lavation, to make pure

T ake away the strain of stress filled days
H eavenly beach, spend time in sun's rays 
E levate yourself to where Angels play

L augh, twirl and spin
A ct like a child again
U rgency is pretend
G rant yourself time with a friend
H ave more than one week a year
T o make your life happy to bear
E nough relaxation and rest
R epent your dying, tired being to zest

O ften we ignore the signs
F or when it is our time

L isten to your body, your brain and heart
I promise you will not regret this part
F or there I have been, many a time
E venings filled with loving the laughter of life - so fine.

    Hi Amy. This is a wonderful,clever acrostic.So much to reach and teach. I've learned to listen to my body especially when it needs certain foods because of nutrients it might lack, I get cravings (except for too much chocolate, when It's just being naughty)Everything you've written is so apt.I so believe in laughter and love without these we don't live but just exist.Congrats on your place win,well deserved.Thanks for your kind comments on my poem -glad we've been introduced. luv June(Sylvia)
