The Hammock by David Lowry

With sensuous cords suspended 
between heaven and earth, 
A nylon hammock generously supports 
all, races, colours and creeds.

Guilty pleasures are carefully balanced 
during a rendezvous of 
stolen moments and secret escapes.  

Ideas are born
in this cocooning nexus, and 
work is accomplished from 
a place of succour and rest.

A gentle swaying
calms the mind and
brings life into balance once more.

David Lowry
