Running Late.

Goldfinch60



Where has the day gone?

What has happed to it?

Why am I late?

Why am I in a hurry?

Confusion in time assails me!

No time to do things!

Nearly half my day has gone!

Why, oh why did it happen?

Why did I lay in?

Until six fifteen this morning!

    You getting up late there?! A fine write Gold.

    • Goldfinch60

      Yes, another day ruined.

      I feel the same - my most productive hours are from 5am onwards - but don't try to contact me after lunch - I'm usually back in the Land of Nod.

      • Goldfinch60

        We are very much the same in that case. I do go upstairs after lunch while Joyce is watching Neighbours of all things. I go and lay down to "read and listen to music".

        By the way I'm not the greatest fan of the trumpet but WM can do no wrong

        • Goldfinch60

          I used to play trumpet in a swing band, Joyce sang and played clarinet, so I enjoy trumpet playing, WM is so good in both classical and Jazz playing but my favourite trumpeter is Chet Baker, I think his playing is sublime.

          You lost a moment in time - a few moments? Or shall we waste time with naff phrases, such as 'At this moment in time?!' lol.

          Tomorrow is another day. Allow yourself a few extra hours snooze now and again.

          • Goldfinch60

            That time in the morning is most important to me as it is the only real time I have to my self, "me time", while my wife is still in bed and I do not have to worry about what her dementia is causing her to do. That me time is where I write most of my poetry.

            Andy,

            I agree with dusk.
            Why are we in a hurry?!
            I really don’t miss those days when I had to “clock in” at the same time five days a week! That was stressful!

            Have a wonderful day!

            Love to Joyce and you.

            ~Laura~

                Nice poem reminds me of the rabbit in Alice in wonderland. Keep it up

                THANKS FOR SHARING ANDY ! Love the HORN and love WYNTON ~ fast & smooth ! When I've a big project on my plate I often wish (and there are a few like that) who didn't have to sleep at all. So I go to bed late (after midnight) and I'm always up before 7. being single helps ! The odd night i am with ANGELA is OK because she is asleep almost as soon as she's in BED and she likes to be up before 7am. I can't read or work in bed ~ Angela loves to read in bed but soon falls asleep ~ AMEN. Thanks for sharing BRIAN.

                • Goldfinch60

                  Thank you Brian. As I have said in previous replies early mornings are the time I can write while Joyce is still in bed and I don't have to worry too much about her.
