It is a warm spring day; sun feels good on my back.
Half daydreaming, conjuring up the words I want to say.

Wondering about my selection, maybe it could be better said in another way.
Ponder on the “ifs and buts”, this could take all day.

I may have been daydreaming but mostly I was just pondering.
I suddenly realizing that pondering doesn't require that you really do anything.
Results are not required, no time limit set, so you can just ponder I suppose.

It comes to my mind that a lot of folks just ponder most of their lives away.
The sun still is warming my back but now I have forgotten what I wanted to say.
