For The Time Being

Ata mārie. Good morning. Today in Aotearoa New Zealand, it is National Poetry Day. Naturally, I cannot let the day go by without posting a poem. And a photo. At present, I am working through the Short Poem stack in my poetry library. So. Tenei taku ruri. Here is my poem My N.Z. Poetry Day offering. A very short poem called, the quest.

the quest

To be free is a wish you wake up with,
your brain struggling to remember
who you are, cast memories
an invisible swarm and each day,
one more notch
in the leather of days.
