I woke up to see the most stunning sunrise my best partner in the world was looking amazing as I was so thankful for a wonderful breakfast I was stunned by the beauty of the flower in my garden horrified by a piece of litter unpicked by a negligent council on the train I was shocked by the rudeness of this generation appalled by the lack of their respect for older people whom back in my day we valued so highly
I arrived in work drowned by a monsoon at break with the best team ever we shared stories and pissed ourselves, literally, laughing out loud over the most fantastic cappuccinos made by the most talented Barista but got annoyed when a non-native minimum wage worker did not pronounce Dearbhla's name correctly ruining our enjoyment spoiling my morning leaving us devastated
At lunch I was so saddened by the terrible news my heart was with those people and could feel their pain we got enraged by the governments lack of response prayed for the victims of this grave injustice so ashamed by our society that I retweeted but found solace in the good deed of my favourite actor my faith in humanity was fully restored
By four pm I was absolutely shattered, totally exhausted from the hardest day in my life as I counted the minutes for wine o'clock and dreamt of Tapas in the best restaurant that I know you would love and you really must go there we had the best craic ever with the most amazeballs work mates who I love for ever and absolutely adore returning home exhausted to my most loving family of talented children with the cutest faces my sleeping angels, so thankful to God
But I could not sleep kept awake by the superlatives that fill my joyous days and haunt my solitude of night tomorrow I will be the living dead, a zombie, wrecked, on deaths door, begging for caffeine never being soooo tired, ready to crash on the floor. Life is so so hard when lived to the adjectival extreme.
The road rambles into the decline,
One way to go, nowhere else to be.
The fresh water hurries to meet the sand, to wash with it to the sea.
Golden stretch in stone green embrace beneath a blanket of grey,
Torn to reveal a flash of blue,
and a golden promise behind the hill.
