DALL-E

Don’t ask me about that

I’ve only just begun, It’s much too soon

There’s more to do, for me to see

We’ll talk about it after the year's final New moon

~~~~~~

Ask me about my day

Whether I’ve written or not

If words came to me

Or if it was a day without

~~~~~~

Ask me about my month

Some stuff I’ve been up to

A good or bad experience

Or another book I’ve read through

~~~~~~

I’m wondering about the seasons

Spring, summer, fall next, and winter sure to follow

A baby, some stories, and time well spent

I want to make the best of my tomorrows

~~~~~~

Then time will come,

~~~~~~

Ask me in December

When my forty weeks are complete

If after all the hard work put forth

Every goal set, did I meet
