Peace This Day

Peace,
Peace this day
surrounds me
No droning air conditioner
No humming computer
Strange...even the phone
sits on its cradle in silence today

All laid-back and chillin'
I listen to 'Mandatory Marley'
a daily spot on a local radio station

I tried to read my book of Zen
But laid it down for my poetry pen

I watch a fly
walking across my closed organizer

Even this fly I think
is looking for the peace
of this lazy day
content to stay
camouflaged
against the black leather

I hear
the tic-toc, tic-toc
of the hypnotizing clock

And the sun does not shine
And the winds do not blow
And the rains do not fall
And nothing

Nothing disturbs
this peace
this...the peaceful flow
of this
therapeutic day
