It’s the sit awhile
the shoes-off style
the feet-up pose
the anything goes
that slows us down
that smooths the frown
that sets us free
to simply be.

It’s the chit-chat
the ‘you know that’,
it’s the mundane
the quaint innane
that forms the glue
makes friendships true
makes family
for you and me.

It’s freedom to loose
your Ps and your Qs,
to let down your guard,
when nothing’s too hard,
that says we belong
that nothing is wrong
that’s sanctuary,
life’s ‘ought-to-be’.
