- Today - Poem by Ben Gieske

- Today -

Rating: 3.4

(inspired by John Latham's art, 'The N-U Niddrie Heart')

I awoke in a stream of rays,
laid my Pregnant Survivor’s Manual
on the edge of the rug,
gave it a quick tug.
At the other end
I placed my book of Vanished Species,
then squatted in between,
gave myself a hug
and felt just like today.

A very neat capture of your views on today - I confess I tend to be more verbose most of the time :) Best wishes Dave
