Feeling Yesterday

I felt fantastic yesterday, as soon
as I returned from overnight with kids.
I walked into my place at nearly noon,
unpacked my little bag, and met my sibs
to visit Mom and lunch with cousins missed
for two pandemic years. My appetite
received good food, my face was warmly kissed,
and for some hours everything felt right.

And even in the evening, till I slept
at 1 a.m., in front of my TV,
I felt okay. But overnight what crept
on me is not fun symptomatically –
Is this a cold? How often feeling well
is like an omen of an illness spell…
