Poem - A Day In The Life

a day in the life of

…a bard

I got up at 4.29

Insomnia on my agenda

words wash tumbling over in my mind

I struggled for equilibrium

as my life ship tacked zigzaggedly

the clouds of change years speeding

speeding over my head

beneath my feet or on my companion walls

in a sky beyond my comprehension

I suffered for aloneness


yet plucked plump poems from the fire

…of me

my life burning in gods spiteful embrace

begrudging my talent for berating him

wait your turn god

I’m talking to me about me

me my mind meandering
