The end of a job … and a new beginning

Waking up.

Stirring from stress.

A full-time coma of planning and tests

Over.

Lie down and linger.

Wait, observe, expect, hope for,

Discover, see, explore, pay attention

to the world around you in three dimensions.

 

Take time to ponder.

Wonder at sound, taste, colour.

Hoover up sensory information like Noo-Noo from the Teletubbies –

or a black-hole in space, its gravitational field dragging into me

a world alive with new tonality.

 

Feel a new maturity of taste and body

in olives, whiskey and filter coffee,

bitter and sour and salty enjoyment –

blended flavours I’d prejudged,

feelings I’d avoided.

The darkness that seemed scary and unwanted

is now decadent emptiness.

 

Wait, observe, expect, hope for,

Discover, see, explore, pay attention

to the world around you in three dimensions.

Marvel at light

And colour in eyes

and ears and tongue and sight and mind.
