This day belongs to me.
I will not share it.
I will not cook or clean.
I will not go to work.
If I shut the door today, it is okay.
If I ask you to figure it out yourself today
that is okay too
because today is mine
and I do not have to share it.
Today is my Christmas
and all the gifts are mine
the gifts of unencumbered thought
and time to unfold, to write and discover
and craft words into powerful poetry.
Today is one of my favorite days of the year.
I cherish it and look forward to it all year long.
Today is mine. It belongs to me, and I to it.
It is mine, and I am grateful.

Loved this. I too had to ‘shut the doors’ and keep reminding my daughter and niece to not disturb me during the marathon. It is tough, but so rewarding to take some quiet time off when writing. Glad you had a wonderful day!
Lovely. This is how I feel about the marathon too.
This is an absolute truth. We share the same day, without the worry of the world. Well done.
Nice poem! I also enjoyed the day and its solitary goal. 🙂
I love this poem. Sometimes we need to shut the door and get into our writing mind and let the words spill out. This is the perfect time for this.
