- 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.

The best changes often start as a single, simple thought at the beginning of every new day. Think big, and discover the ways to make every day count........10/10

A thematic and inspirational poem. ' Today is the day ' is the essence of the poem. Good work, Ben. Keep it up. Best wishes Naseer

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