National Poetry Day in the UK

The Now


I’m having a transition

I don’t feel quite right

It’s not bad

It’s just…

The full extent is not yet in sight


I’ve tried to put it into words

But they only show the edge

The words are right

The truth is there

But I can’t see past the ledge


What I think is happening

Is only half the tale

Or less maybe –

I just don’t know how deep the scale


I think I’ve passed another milestone

Or I can feel it by the way

I yearn to peek

And see what’s what

But a day still lasts a day


I cannot rush to find out

I can only live each day

The Now

That’s when I like to be

No peering in the grey


This trembling within myself

Has not yet reached my brain

The body knows

But I do not


I must not entertain


That might not help

They are not my realm

The Now is home

The Now is mine

And I am at the Helm
