ODE TO LAZINESS – PABLO NERUDA

“She showed me on the sand small broken bits of marine matter, driftwood, seaweed, stones, sea birds’ feathers     & like black crosses, cormorants clinging to the rocks…along the coast all afternoon, sun & fog waged war.  …I took off my shoes beside the fire, sand spilled from them & soon I was falling fast asleep.”  — Pablo Neruda
