Labor Day

There are things to be done, but nothing which can be ordered or begun today.  Labor Day does not bring with it an obligation of labor or anything religious, despite being a holiday.  Today is an unplanned day... my favorite kind.

This is an unplanned day:
My favorite kind.
The house is quiet.
The cat washes himself in the sun,
He cleans between his toes.
My husband is asleep upstairs.
To walk with a friend.
Despite its name,
This is an unplanned day,
My favorite.
I cannot drive.
There is no business
That can be done,
No phone calls
Except perhaps the leisure kind.
A holiday declared
With no
Religious obligation.
