Splendour

In the splendour
Of wonder
Midnight
Adventure

Respect for
The future

Now is now
Remember

Living in the
Moment is
What we
Strive for

Striding against
The wind
Sometimes
You have to

& sometimes
You let the
Wind take
You where
It wants
To

Solar flares
Affect you
As do
The moon
& the stars
Too

We thought
We had
Only one
But we had
Two

Of everything
We needed
After having
Nothing

Curious
Prepared
Unprepared
Preparing
Persisting
In cute shoes

Remember
The candies
She’d leave
On the table
The leaves of
July
The leaves of
October

April now
A moment
To wonder
What a cycle
Nearly around
Has given us

Certainly something

Or the other

For Your Daily Word Prompt ‘strive’


Authour’s note: another poem for day 10 of a month of poetry 2021. This was an April 3rd prompt for #YDWP I’m doing today, because it’s been on the back of my mind. The poem wrote itself now.
