surrender

holidays just begun
yet my brain
   not quite letting go
   of the so-many-things
   which threatened
   to overflow
   and dribble out my ears

can’t stop
and now
it is time
to r-e-l-a-x
enjoy this freedom
s
   l    d
      o    o
         w    w
                   n
but still I am
on full-alert
like a meerkat
on guard-duty
so I must breathe
slow and steady
and try
to
surrender
