An Invitation

Stop! Take a breath and start again.
We know that work is not much fun,

with crazy colleagues, highs and lows;
the meetings, deadlines, e-mail, news;

the letters waiting to be sent
and trains arriving always late,

so find your home and close the door
and settle in your favourite chair

with glass of wine or perfumed tea
or take a bath, the senses free;

tone down the lights and in the dark
set up some candles, banish talk

and find a little calm and space;
relax, just let it go; try this.
