HOLIDAY
 
My mind is busy running over
all of the current activities.
It’s as if I’m living in them
rather than just completing them
and moving on.
 
I seem to want to hold
it all in my head and
replay the elements over and over again.
Where I did well
or where I messed up.
 
I shift down a gear
and leave all the daily activity to one side.
Travelling slower, I can plan and organise.
There is more space for thinking here.
It is quieter.
 
And then I go even slower
and bring the car to a halt.
Leaving all thinking behind.
Sitting quietly by the shore
and looking out to sea.
