Everyone needs a workbench

Everyone needs a workbench
Not to work, but to live

To fold paper into airplanes and boats
To build ant farms and collect fireflies in bottles

To write of teenage angst
To fill in college applications

To repair bits and pieces of a first home
To make cookies
To help a child fold paper and collect things

To paint, to write, to assemble models
To turn wires, stones, broken glass into works of art
To cut flowers, to plant seedlings
To watch videos, to do puzzles

To create scrapbooks with grandkids
To fill in crosswords
To quietly reminisce

Everyone needs a workbench… lifebench
