For isn’t life grand!
An inward look
That we’d understand
A nourishing act
For to fuel the soul
A balance within
That softly we’d roll
We were tired
Eager to see whether we could slip off our shoes
Unleash the day in a most irresponsible manner
Letting exhaustion have its way
It was okay!
Morning arrived in its happy manner
Offering another chance to sing and smile
To brave the wind, stare at the sun in wonder
Then find contentment again at day’s end
Who now is thirsty for tomorrow?
I am! I am!
While my immersion in the moment allowed the universe to gift me with one Delighted poet
Happy for him whilst pushing through my pain
I am in love with now’s sorrow
Shall I claim it again?
I am thirsty for tomorrow!
Eager to honor Sunday’s silence
Today’s truth shall advance with a gentle, sweeping motion
Holding at bay metal-and-plastic grind against concrete
Until Monday beckons me, eager again
It’s hard to wait for
Wanting that drumbeat
It feels like highschool
Like being schooled
In the reminder
The refrain dear
It’s all we wait for
