With time on my hands,

 I fell into a calendar daze,

For my hours became weeks,

 and my months a perennial haze.

External forces halted the movement of the sun,

And nothing ever ended,

 for the day was never done.

I am slipping silently now

 into a future that does not exist,

I am sliding with the ease of a serpent into a past,

which has become completely amiss.

Tracks of the present are likened now to the sands of time,

Flowing in retrospect to the halting place of my mind.

For I am in a calendar daze,

and trapped haltingly to the confines

Of times irreversible perennial haze.

An superb poem of life and emotions so often, too often felt.
magnificent poetry
Thank You Allen.
Reviewed by E T Waldron 3/25/2005
Allen, this can be either beautiful or worrisome. Sometimes
a daze is wondrous and gives us needed escape from overwhelming
realities. It can be dangerous in wrongful situations that
continue beyond what they should. Superb poem, I really
liked this one for the duality of circumstance.

Powerfully meaningful poem that many can relate to. Thank you. Love and peace to you. Regis

I can totally empahize with this one after working 30 odd then suddenly being thrust into unexpected retirement I too am lost and most times don't know one day from the next.
