“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realise they were the big things.” Robert Brault

Days Come As They Are

I make no demands on my days
although some may disagree,
days come to me as they are,
and I respond to them as I am,
which seems to me the best way,
to conduct time through a lens of 
moments holds a richness not
ordinarily found in planned time,
which is just a straight-jacket
found in diaries which I liken
to cattle corralled, held captive
to the agendas of others,
there is an indescribable 
feeling in risking the freedom
to be, risking spontaneity, love,
not because it delivers anything,
but because it may not deliver
anything at all, and that mystery 
is the very best.
