Today is not a day for writing poetry. /

No lists of beautiful things, /

interesting or thoughtful things, /

just the sun, shining incessantly. /

Just the wind, blowing meanly through my fingers. /

No rain. Inspiration and flood waters have dried, /

and there's no music in my soul. No sadness /

either, nor boredom, nor joy. All the languages/

of my expressiveness are silent today. /

All except baking: in my kitchen /

- out of season now - /

hot cross buns are rising./
