what i saw
as i arrived at school
for parent teacher conferences
at the beginning of the day.
also what i saw
as i left school
after parent teacher conferences
at the end of the same day.
a day always passes
no matter how busy or how calm
no matter what we have done or not done
somehow slipping by.
‘the long day wanes; the slow moon climbs the deep.’
-alfred lord tennyson
“finish each day and be done with it.
you have done what you could.
some blunders and absurdities
no doubt crept in;
forget these as soon as you can.
tomorrow is a new day.
you shall begin it serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be encumbered
with your old nonsense”
-ralph waldo emerson

had tea and morning meditation with one
surprised and had coffee with another
shared a friendly birthday dinner with yet another, at her in-laws’.
it was a good day.
‘be happy for this moment. this moment is your life.”

so sinks the day-star in the ocean bed,
and yet anon repairs his drooping head,
and tricks his beams,
and with new-spangled ore,
flames in the forehead of the morning sky.
