A three-minute vacation


I’m going on vacation.

I won’t be long
and I’m not traveling far–
just a three-minute trip
from the stresses of the head
to the stillness of the heart,
where I can sit in warm,
comforting waters and know
all is well and all is kind.

I’m on an anytime vacation
from the everyday,
a return to the place
where real life lives.
