Beginning plus 15

by Caroline Whalley

Cosy, snug, smug 
Still in bed,
Rifling through memories, examining head, 
Jitters setting in
Too hard to live through these again 
At a passive feast but with no eyes 
Change thoughts push them aside
Get up. 
Get up NOW, don’t scrutinise.

Day 2, of ‘one a day’ poems. By the end of April 2021, 30 poems will create a series. Each poem covers a fragment, a snippet taken consecutively throughout a day.
