Above the fume-filled fog
through the dark-stained glass
of my lofty, office block
I watch crazy ants
dart and weave along
the greedy pavements
of consuming commerce.

Today- Friday
Time to wipe off
the business-like smile
from my rat-race face.
Loosening the company tie
from my tight-starched neck
the doors of the lift
become a gateway to freedom.

Yes! Enough now
of cement and brick
as my memory cries out
for avenues of lime
and fields of corn;
that always greet me
with a golden wave.

There where life and leaf
sprout under a canopy
of wispy white and solid blue
I will stand statue still
on my sunlit path
and drink bucket on bucket...

of tranquility and peace.

don't miss it at all
Work that is. Like this descriptive spin of yours on the winding down of travail.

Poet's Day
Your poet describes a pleasure that I have now been deprived of and in some way I am envious of you!

Although working possibly 24/7 for many years there is always the time when at last you are looking forward to a day off or even a weekend. And the absolute pleasure of finishing work on the last day of the stint.

Now I am retired this has been taken away from me!

Yes I have the pleasure of knowing that each day is any day I want it to be, but days off can be enjoyable just because they are that!

Enjoyed your poem, enjoy your weeknd....
