I Wonder.....!!!





I look out the window

Seeing the fallen coconut fruit
The leaves from the orange tree
The petals from the hibiscus plant
And I thought to myself
What does this day hold for me
I wonder

I stepped out the front door
Faced with the barking of my Dog-Bliss
Sighted the neighbors goat
Heard the crowing of the landlady’s chickens
And I thought to myself
What does this day hold for me
I wonder


Walking into the street
Hearing the blaring of the school bus
Seeing the impatient Dad blaring his horns at the front gate
The already tired mum dragging her twin boys into the car
And I thought to my self
What does this day hold for me
I wonder



Sitting in front of my PC
Writing this prose/poem
Thinking to my self
What exactly does today hold for me
I wonder
