Taking Time Off

Whether on a coffee break or actually getting away, take time to relax and enjoy life every moment that you can!

Wherever I Go Appears a View

Wherever I go appears a view
Of Autumn's gold and red brown hue
A backdrop of foliage in warm sunny spice
With splashes of fresh cool greens so nice
In full earth tone splendor that is November
A tranquil collage to gaze upon and remember
These last autumn days before frost turns to December.

Escape on a Coffee Break

Escape to a thirty second dream
When you need a moment and cannot hide
Take a break from the team
Go away with your thoughts on a ride
To overcome whatever stress there may seem
Without a need for others to confide
And return your composure back to full steam.

What super poetry you write, Maria. And what gorgeous images these are. Are they your won images? Is this REALLY where you spend you coffee breaks? If so - lucky you...I'm green with ency!

I am forever plagiarised ....
at least that way so many more
share my poetry ...
money is nonsense ...
its only scent

very beautiful and all eyes will; behold
but i still can't convey
my views

No problems, i ain't much of a poet ,
even though i have composed only 7000 poems May God bless wikinut and triond and the lady
for small mercies
i enjoy now reading you all and drop a line here and there as i have no means of communication else ,thanks

Life is always colorful
More so in the darkness,
Which is black
Under the spread of sheets when love is packed

This is so amazing Maria, it filled my heart with deep yearning. These words sum it up for me: "Escape to a thirty second dream When you need a moment and cannot hide
Take a break from the team."
