Woolgathering

Woolgathering

A Poem by Lathen Griffiths
"

A day for daydreams…

"
My mind was woolgathering,
wandering through daydreams
to pass the humdrum,
scheduled to arrive at no place anytime soon,
not even aware of the journey being undertaken,
only that it makes such few stops along the way,
those being the odd thoughts that stand out
for the most minuscule of moments;

Her smile flickers there briefly,
then the awareness of the chill upon my hands,
a mere blink at an overcast skyline
leaves its shadow on the back of my eyelids,
its imprint, captured only to then fade from my thoughts completely,
for already my mind is sailing to other places;
Weekend Ahoy!
not too long now and there will be the clink of beer bottles,
after all, there is more than one way to gather wool.

Weekend Ahoy.

That takes me back to days when I worked and my mind would randomly drift somewhere else. Somewhere I would rather be. Daydream Believer. Your poem also made me reflect on the song by the Monkees. Such a happy, upbeat oldie. Ah, the clink of glasses or bottles on a Friday evening after work. The poets club, long before I wrote any poetry. Piss off early tomorrow's Saturday. Remember it well. Look where I wandered too :))

It is I who should thank you for the carefree moment you depicted.

Thank you.
This poem is so relatable. Our minds are often occupied with thoughts of our next day off or free time available to us. We live to reach those moments or find the comforts of those easy times. Eventually though our troubles tend to seep into our daydreaming. You do a wonderful job capturing those moments of thought Lathen.
