While pondering, among other things
The nature of the day – whether the weather
Will be clement or savage
Whether the year will be kind or cruel
From the Telegraph
of all places
I don’t frequent it much – too dry, too altogether
Filled with middle-class smugness
But accessing remotely allows
A more utilitarian approach
Reading on, I see that
Writing it, that is.
It helps with mood, and temper
‘Emotional regulation‘ so they say.
I used to write more – sometimes
Sometimes easier to write
Emotion in a poem.
Than in prose.
So today and before work I ponder
How will the week greet me
Will colleagues still be sick?
How can I balance
The workload with the crises?
Is my time fairly split or sometimes
Do I cop out and
Spend more time with people I like
And is that irresponsible?
Who knows? Probably
But it is certainly easier to say
Apologies to any serious poets but honestly, check the link out. It is really interesting stuff and I really do think I’ll try it (but I promise no more attempts on the blog!).
