“Sleep is the best meditation.” Dalai Lama

What If I Didn't 

What If i didn't 
finish that email or hit send,
or make the bed, or get to
work on time, or even turn up?

What if I didn't eat dinner
or take a shower, or answer
the phone when it has rung
six times (same number)?

What if I didn't sweep my path
or wipe the sink, or do the 
washing, or pruned the vine,
what if I just stayed in bed?
