Today I had to try to book a routine blood test at the docs. I’m hoping to get the ok to cut out most of the meds I take now. I was 17th in the call queue when I got through. Well inspiration hits at the strangest times and I wrote most of this. Not one of my best but I kinda like it.
Bright blue sky morning
Early morning mist lays on the meadow
Sitting barefoot on the porch edge
Feet on dew drenched grass
I am thinking, thinking hard
Where am I now?
Where do I want to be?
I do know that
But where will I end up?
What will I become?
Who will share this future with me?
Yeah, happiness is what I want
I guess I think I deserve it now
… and past disappointments haunt me
… broken trust hurt me
… bitter betrayal burnt me
But I survived.. yep I guess
I moved on… oh yes.
… I moved forward… oh yes.
And all that poisoned water
It’s gone, passed under the bridge
It’s fresh and cool now. I can drink life
… without sickness anymore.
And glances back? Yeah maybe a few.
I hear Killdeer’s plaintive calling. I sip coffee
Nostalgia… sometimes, but bittersweet now.
.. the past wasn’t all bad
It just became that way
And so I am this way.
Just sitting on my porch, feet wet.
On a late summers day.
