All I know is the sun rising.
The window faces east.
I am alive and alone to enjoy it.
Last night, I sensed a
presence in the room.
The air thickened and I felt a
weight on me.
I was too scared and too
comfortable to move.
I don’t believe in destiny
but I would like to be more
accepting of things.
All I know is that the sun rises
whatever it is I expect to find.
There is nothing ordinary about it.
Gratitude to Tom for his permission to post his wonderful poem (from his Laureate’s Choice Pamphlet ‘Complicity’).
Here’s the book link:-
Wishing all of you blessings in your ordinary, extraordinary days this Christmas season and always.
