Never contemplate can’t.

The thought crossed his mind

As he moved along the motorway

On reaching the next park and rest

He indicated and parked up

Yes it was time to park and bark out loud

He then wrote

What thoughts go through their minds

As they speed along life’s highway

Do they never stop and think –

Stop, write what you wish to say

Or is it they just allow the mind to roam

In the land of –

Time and tide waits for no one

Should we not try and stem the tide?

Allow some time for contemplation

Indicate for indication

Park, rest awhile, relax, unwind

This hectic everyday life needs relaxation

We all deserve to treat ourselves

Aid our concentration, allow the mood music

assist us find our time for silence and inner peace

Then with pen and paper engage –

A poem you will transcribe onto a blank page.
