a life in the day

artwork by phil burns

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

a life in the day

this morning
the sun shone
and it was hot and lasted forever
because I had so much to do
running learning and laughing

this afternoon
there was a mix
of blue sky and clouds
and the time flew by
because I had so much to do
working wedding and children

this evening
the sky is overcast
with cold winds and some rain
and time drags
because I have nothing to do
and no one to do it with

but I remember this morning
and I remember you

    You sum life up beautifully – with the voice of each of the stages and the changing awarenesses of time… And memory.
    ‘The sun shone
    and it was hot and lasted forever…’ – I love this, I can just see the child.
    Excellent title, and brilliant GIF from the artwork.
