The Sun is Shining

The day is dull and life is slow,
random thoughts are pouring in in a continuous stream of flow.
Pondered and asked myself… shall I start something new?
paused for a tick and thought options are few.
Checked the horoscope, and it too suggested it is not the right timing,
Oh hello, but the sun is shining.

Pivoted my perspective and sat down to write a poem,
“A plus B equals C” came to mind … but that was like writing a theorem.
Amazed by the hiccup, hoped AI could solve such complexities,
but realized there are other pressing issues that deserve priority.
Alas … technological advancements abound, yet problems are piling,
Oh hello, but sun is shining.

Not wanting to give up, decided to write a blog instead,
ideas were many, but they were like a mashed potato of news I have read.
The news was that inflation is on the rise and so are prices,
which makes one think should I buy ‘bread and butter’ or just ‘bread slices.’
People are coping, but the impacts will be long-lasting,
Oh hello, but the sun is shining.

Bemused n baffled, thought posting on social was the way to go
but found my feed full of notifications, and cleaning it was a big no-no.
Felt no need to beat around the bush; perhaps it is not my day,
well ‘no day is perfect’, so started working to get a few things out of the way
In a day of drama, this change of heart was the only silver lining
Oh hello, but the sun is also shining.
