life’s acrostic

(take two, for Steve)


floating down the alphabet

or maybe it’s drifting past me

compiling the days into language

or maybe it’s speaking through me

filling my diary with appointments

increasingly shaded each day

anticipating storms by the weekend

interrupted by a welcome segue –

    Quite a powerful slice of life with some lovely lines, apart from the animals, ‘increasingly shaded each day,’ and my fave, ‘compiling the days into language’ with a depth of meaning.

      Thanks Steve! I really appreciate that. I was having quite the week, actually…I really felt I needed some puppy therapy 🙂 The lions and tigers and bears line is a facetious nod to my husband who used to quote that a lot. And I was happy that this song I like had animal therapy haha
