Overdue

I slept until noon today
Ocassionally repositioning
In the bed of a lover
Delighted I was getting
Overdue rest
I dripped sweat today
Heating my muscles, skin, breath
In the santuary of my home
Delighted I was getting
Overdue exercise
I fed myself today
Overcooking items slightly
In my steam-filled kitchen
Delighted I was getting
Overdue nutrients
I cared for my needs today
Happily making time
In my schedule for myself
Delighted I was getting
Overdue time alone

(This is my October 25th contribution to Poem A Day October.)
