A Day Lost

neighborhood dogs

wandering from yard to yard

pissing and depositing

waste for the unsuspecting

crows squawking

from their perches

complaining that no one

has been out to

throw them their stale bread

I’m still in bed

despite more than half a day’s

sunlight having been spent


out there life goes on

in here it has yet to begin

About John White

I've written off and on my entire life. It took years for me to finally take putting words together seriously. Now it's not, nor does it ever feel, like work. Writing daily has become habitual. No day is complete without words having appeared on the page.

  1. A day lost is a day gained, I feel. Your guy’s a bit of an Oblomov perchance.

  2. depositing waste for the unsuspecting foot of the neighbor?

  3. Having just driven 32 miles to work in the driving rain, a half day in bed sounds like quite the life. Unless you’re ill. In which case a speedy recovery.

  4. Reblogged this on Let it come from the heart and commented:
    A wonderfully crafted poem by an excellent poet.

  5. You’ll be ‘up’ by now…I’m sure. Don’t forget those crows.;)

  6. Another day in the neighborhood!

  7. It’s good to get lazy in bed. Such bliss!

  8. Very earthy and real Mike. 🙂

  9. Reblogged this on wwwpalfitness.

  10. I miss the crows I used to feed — three years they’ve been missing…I don’t know what I did to offend them…

  11. Well done, well said. I’m reading, the poetry of daily life.
