while seeking a sunday afternoon nap

long hours spent under hot sun
demanded some kind of rest

but better than the quiet world of dreams
is the one outside the window
bubbling with children’s shrieks and parents’
laughter, the hiss and crackle of a charcoal grill
during a lazy afternoon barbecue

my body wanted rejuvenation
and found it more in listening
than sleep.
