Saturday 3 January 2009


is the first day of a new phase
I am awake in sunlight and unafraid
I can hear the birds singing
and everywhere is golden and green
and smells clean just for me.

I am wearing a watch for the first time
in a long time
though I don't care what time it is
I only know the light is alive and real
and that is enough for me.

is smiles and laughter and absorption
in the billion things to do
like read a chapter or four
from a dozen books or more
and cast a careless glance
at the mess upon the floor
trek in time through the picture gallery
and hope secretly he'll call me.
