Shaman - Horse

Poem - State the Day

The poem “State the Day” was inspired by this poet’s juggling between writing poetry and pursuing interests that are more inductive to fame.


State the Day

To be known has a price
a due given to past works
glittered trinkets that exclaim
where the future may yet lay

these become foundation’s curse
basis given to later worth
even though a fuller breadth
is still there with relevance

expectations become contrite
sorrow given to circumstance
when the outcome does not match
the vision fixed upon the prize

while a range of interests beg
something else to the front
for some time in the stead
of fame’s need to state the day.
