Still Life

Pad Challenge Day 7. ┬áPrompt “What won’t wait?”

What Won’t Wait
What is so urgent
That pokes and needles me
It is there when I close my eyes
At the end of the day
Lay my head
Upon my pillow

It is there before I awake
Urgent
Requires attention
I hear it call to me

Sometimes in dreams

The answer

Appears
I rise
To test this answer

The day flies by
Never enough time
The work will not wait
