Natural Rhythm

three prunes six almonds
this night's bedtime treat
after poets readings (many)
and a late movie (reprise)
wending toward midnight
when I can go to my rest

this is my natural rhythm
sustainable with a nap
virtually every afternoon
I read NYR at breakfast
books at lunch at dinner
we come together and talk

I don't call these habits
but practices in balance
after years working on it
always meeting deadlines
Sunday pancakes my ritual
Bach cantatas in our ears
