The Luxury of Time #TheDailyPost

The luxury of time

Monday’s come and Monday’s gone
How quickly I don’t know
Soon Tuesday will also slip away
And the whole of August too

How I wish I had the luxury
Of bottling up each moment of the day
So that I could sip and savour it
Before it runs away

I long for the luxury of lazy days
To sit by a lily pool
And feed the ducks
And read a book
And nibble at chocolate
One, by assorted one.

Do you enjoy a box of assorted chocolates? Which is your favourite one?

A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!

    Wow.. I think the luxury of time is in doing something we choose to do. But, I want to be as busy as you are when I retire 🙂

      Well I’m not retired . I never had a job so I’m never tired and there’s no question of getting re-tired ( sorry very bad pun) .
      Honestly I’m so busy I have no time to think and that’s a good thing …

    Of late my days have been like that, breezing past me. It’s already August and I have so many things to do. That luxury time sounds like a dream 🙂

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels this way. Often I don’t get time to think leave alone write!

    Oh yes, I feel now more than ever how time is a luxury. I like to keep myself busy but there is simply never enough time to do things I like. I often wish I didn’t have to sleep at all so I could use the whole night to read. 😉
