Catching Up

Poetry by , | April 12, 2009

Lazy Saturday afternoons
    To catch up on rest.
Hectic Monday mornings
    To catch up on work.

    To catch up on cleaning.
Lengthy, newsy letters
    To catch up with friends.
Planned week-end outings
    To catch up with family.
Long, passionate embraces
    To catch up on love.

Why am I always catching up?

Tight, loose, gentle
Envisioning wholeness and wellness
As they gaze at moon and stars.
     Restless and calm
     Detailed and summed.

     crying lonely then bursting into laughter
     laughing uncontrolled till eyes brim with tears
     looking exotic in floor-length silky wear
     feeling as pretty in mix-match garbs at ukay sale.
