Going back to school

When the kids are home
Or on holiday
I wonder when I’ll get
Some time for myself
To just rest my head
With nothing to think of

When schools are to open
The realisation dawns
My life is changing
Oh! What will I do now?
Three hours to myself
A long time at a stretch

Should I do my shopping?
Or meditate instead?
Should I write a poem?
Or work on my book?
Draw a portrait or two?
Or maybe visit a friend?

The day is coming close
And as the kids await
I’m pondering on
the possibilities before me.
I’m sure the days ahead
Will be as bright as can be.
