Public Displays of Napping

I need naps.
I embrace naps.
I practice naps.

Hidden throughout the cities and countryside,
beneath the leaves and between the trees,
 are napping havens.

Sometimes I just stop what I am doing
take of my shoes and rest.
There is no reason to be tired
in a culture that accepts cat naps
as a normal part of life.

Put your pride aside,
let down your guard,
stretch out and relax.
Listen to the birds,
watch the sun in the leaves,
enjoy the banter of grandmothers.
Be still in public 
and say, "I am home."

You will be amazed at what you will discover
about yourself and the world around you.
A quick stretch and rest on these do a stiff back good.
Feel free to kick off your shoes and crash.
