Dillenia philippinensis - Philippines simpoh

I like the way the petals lay
as if nothing in the world matters
except the importance of rest
and a freedom from worldly fetters
A time to breathe at last
not for others but for self
A time to take in what is best
to regain one's precious health
Oh to bask in the sun
feeling life in every cell
joy in simple pleasures
and for a while all is well
This must be life at its ideal
if only it could be stretched to maximum
and every day is a brand new day
filled with laid-back goodness ad infinitum
If it is only wishful thinking
or mindless dreaming
Let it be, let it be
Once in a while we need to feel free
