lazing, raining

“Too lazy to be ambitious,
I let the world take care of itself.
Ten days’ worth of rice in my bag;
a bundle of twigs by the fireplace.
Why chatter about delusion and enlightenment?
Listening to the night rain on my roof,
I sit comfortably, with both legs stretched out.”

Well I remember sitting here at the Royal Harbour’s quayside café in Ramsgate watching the rain and the boats come and go. Just drinking coffee and having a long lazy lunch. Sometimes rain is just the excuse we need to be busy doing nothing and remembering good times I had had here just one year before with Martin.
