Lunch Over

The Children sit in the mud
Digging in their world

Of infinite possibility and

Unbounded imagination

Shoots become lanterns

Ready to glow in the dark

Lighting the way for Gnomies

Who only come out at night

Sunlight slants through the trees

The birds warble on

As the children chatter and

A plane rumbles by overhead

Sitting naked at my desk
I empty my mind of tomorrow’s shopping list

So that I may sleep tonight

Writing a poem

In this cold lonely house
Sifting through


I sit


Of today

Some things might need doing
