THE BEST OF OUR REST

When time stops a rest
…enjoy
Because it pushes our quests to their best
…clearing some ills from our chests
…going as far as weeding out some of our thinking pests
…to give breath to our joy

II
A human is a farm
…needing a tending
…periodic weed clearing
To ward off pests
There are no wins for successful broken bodies
For what is a journey without a working body
…in the vehicle of a spirit
…and the engine of a soul?
Rest is the best vest of the human nest

III
Be the centre of your occupational chores
Your loss
…only needs a whispering advertisement
…for your swift replacement

IIIb
Think of you as the sun of all dark causes
Your loss
…only needs one dark night
…and eyes blinded will show your spirit your true form:
…replaceable electricity
Rest is the best vest of the human nest

IV
So pause your cause and let rest be the boss
…to toss out ailing trauma
…to fix you clean for your body’s effective continuity
While at it,
…meeting new hearts are good distractions
…with new perspective attractions
Rest surely is the best vest of the human nest
…on all life cruises
