Busy-ness

Busy-ness Empty Busy-ness

Business, spoken busy-ness,
With some it is a way of life,
To stay too busy to deal with
Life’s problems, numbering legion,
Or seemingly nonexistent.
It’s a matter of perspective,
With a vanishing point of view,
Where the foreground is much larger.

We keep busy to weave order
From the twisted lines of thinking,
As we strive to appear busy,
The appearance of “busy-ness”.
Wise ones know when to be busy
And when to just rest and relax.

Thank you. Idleness is a favorite hobby of mine. It affords me much time to think, and to get myself into trouble. deep thought

Hehehehe, I have grown to master the art of Busy-Ness, but decided to revert to the 'Feet up on the Desk and let others be Busy-ness.
Nice poem though Mike, I like to keep busy but laziness always seems to overcome...lol Like Like a Star @ heaven

Thanks Richie, it makes me feel good to hear others share the sentiments I use to write poems and songs. I hope I never get too busy or lazy to write. I know what I'll do. I'll hire a lady to take dictation and just talk my way through each story and poem.

Thanks again.

Mike
