Sometimes no matter how good we know we have it we need to get away and just kick back awhile.

I want to sit in my garden,
On my garden swing,
Writing poems,
Maybe learning to sing.

Petting my kitty,
Playing my guitar,
Visit far away places,
Watching shooting stars,

Let my mind take me places,
That I've never seen,
To mountain tops and sea scapes,
That I'll only see in dreams;

Forest glades and hill sides,
Meadows, streams, spend hours,
Dreaming of these places,
As I sit among my flowers.

Instead of being in this dreary place,
Working like a slave,
I want to run and skip and play,
Before I'm in my grave.

I'm glad to have my job, I am,
I'm happy with my station.
I just need to rest sometimes.
I need a short vacation.

Very nice, glad you liked my Contentment poem. I wrote it when I was cold :) But if you want to read about getting away from all the hustle and bustle of the city. I have one called "The Young Girl "

G'day Judy … I know the feeling. The body and mind somehow collude that a change of scenery is needed. Writing is therapy but at times drops away when in need for that change - nicely expressed Judy - Lindsay

You have a lot of wonderful hobbies and a lot of wishes, but take your time at work because when you retire you might wish you were back to work.. Nice write .. I am retired with a lot of ideal time and I wish I was back to work, but I loved my job.
