When I Woke Up

 

when I woke up Saturday, a week

I didnt expect it would take this long

I didnt expect it would take all day

I didnt expect it would be at all

it just came and then it stayed

burying the glory of each new day

in drab grey melancholy

and now

a week and a day in

brief glimpses of Gods lovely sun

(fewer and farther between

than in reality were)

punctuate this run-on sentence

with exclamations of wonder
