Sunday Afternoon Nap

A steamy Sunday late afternoon I shall succumb to a nap very soon And let the world go where it may As I on my couch, comatose, lay Dreaming of mysteries unsolved Life’s quandaries yet unresolved My reveries are soon interrupted My superb solutions are corrupted When kitchen smells waft through I shout, “What’s for dinner? Stew?” written July 14, 2021

I love naps; it is a wonderful avenue to new poetry and painting ideas! "Dreaming of mysteries unsolved" Oh, yes!

I hate taking naps, I feel like crap afterwards. But I do remember Sunday dinners at my Mom's house and the wonderful smells emanating from the kitchen. I miss that. Stay well my friend.

Thanks, David. Actually, they aren't very helpful to a good night's sleep. Thanks, David.

Heh, heh! Sounds familiar; resonates with me... Am so glad that the last word was not spelled 'Stu!' Cheers, Gershon

There’s nothing like a comfy couch and an afternoon nap, especially when you wake and dinner is ready. Enjoyed the read, Belle

So true, Belle, however nowadays, I'm the one who cooks dinner for myself, so....

Too funny. Do you find you do your best work and thinking while asleep?

Sometimes I do wake up and have a poem in my head already to type out. Oh, I've solved many a problem during a good nap. Thanks for your read, Duke.
