Permission to Do Nothing

Permission to Do Nothing
a child once said “i’m bored!”
a complaint and i played with him
oh, you are so lucky!
how wonderful!
nothing to do!
wow! i wonder what that feels like!
with a curiousity
and yes a remembrance
feeling into how we can achieve
that pure sense of nothingness
do we have to have permission?
do we need permission to simply stop
to let go of our patterns, our routines?
can we find that quiet place, that solitude
and simply be, free from thought
and responsibility?
to quiet the mind
we find tranquility
to stop the doing
we find peace
in the space of nothingness
we return
we return to the womb
of creation
