Extreme Retirement

Extreme Retirement

My daydreams lack a focus. They float by like a cloud.
It is as though much logic is simply not allowed.
Should plans besmirch my reverie, I’m sure to blot them out,
for my thoughts are vagabonds—aimless, without a doubt.
A mortarboard and tassel lurk far within my past,
and I fear the plans they made simply didn’t last
I lie here in my lounge chair, getting too much sun.
I should  raise the umbrella, for sunburn is no fun,
but I cannot stir myself. I’m simply far too lazy.
Retirement would be easier if all the skies were hazy!


Prompt words today are tassel, blot, focus and besmirch. Here are links:

        The poem is not about her, though. I just always look for a photo that might suit the theme of the poem afterwards and love this photo of her that I took at the beach last year so used it.

    I have been retired since August 2007, With issues of family health, personal issues of health which extend to today, If asked I would reply it comes with good days and bad days, but you can make the best of it by being strong. It is worth looking forward to and to enjoy in your wrong way.
    The work is a good write, enjoyed it.
