Daily Prompt: Premonition

He left on Sunday,
without the benefit of a proper conversation.
A wayward visitor,
tentative and small,
was packed up after
a bath and warm meal
to be sent into the system,
because, it was “the right thing” to do.

But in the following hours,
my guts ached with the premonition
that the right thing isn’t always

And I know,
after a few days’ time,
I betrayed the trust of the universe,
who had gifted me what I needed.
And rather
than the gratitude
or even acknowledgement,
I had turned my back.

  1. We just have to do what we can and sometimes taking on an extra responsibility, particularly an animal that needs a lot of care, is not what we can do – but someone else probably will be able to do that. Not a fail – an opportunity for someone else. Beautifully and feelingly written.
