Thank you, but, of course,: Thank you, but, of course, any merit in my comments on your poems has been inspired by the poems themselves.

Thank you.  You have made: Thank you.  You have made this 63rd birthday of mine quite special, unexpectedly so.

I know of no other poems to: I know of no other poems to which I can compare yours, which means it is very unique, and strands alone on its own merit, and on your authority as a Poet with a capital P.  That final stanza, and that final line, are exceedingly chilling.

I Am Hear: I pray for you on a motherly-bestowing, best son equivalency to that I hold of my own North Star Mother. You are Supremely sincere to me and my being.

Wow!  That left me: Wow!  That left me speechless, so this may be short, but be assured, my gratitude is not short at all.  Thank you so much for posting this, certainly unexpected, but . . . I assure you . . . most appreciated.  The timing is great, because next week I have a difficult physical therapy session, and one rough medical procedure (Thursday) followed by somemore difficult physical therapies; and I am starting to become apprehensive, so this poem, and the very kind gesture it represents, has brough new delight to a dismal evening. Thanks again, ever so much.

OCD to the extreme: Every vignette you message is so divinely delicate.

You are entertaining: You are inspiring to me because of your uninspiring attitude. You manage to pull it off.   Update: I share the same timidity particularly in detailing a comment too.

I saw reindeer: Ironically enough, Paper Pursuits is my presentday passion. Also I am in the midst of riding a bike trail. My sweat tastes like sewage. What you say is fair. Thank you for providing some motivation.

I enjoy your writing. I don't: I enjoy your writing. I don't always comment as much as I should because I sometimes get self-conscious about advising others on how to write.  Keep pumping the work out.  I know I have a lot of material but the works I have posted here date back to 1981.  I've been playing this game for 4 decades and I haven't figured out anything better to do with my time.

"Their chatter was like: "Their chatter was like monkies' screams in dying persimmon trees"... I have to say, not only is that original, but brilliant! I loved everything you shared here, dear poet but those lines I quoted.... brilliant!

Perhaps the answer to your: Perhaps the answer to your dreading is in your title. If routine is your misery, break the routine. You are the master of your own destiny. The author and editor of your day. Reinvent yourself. Try something new. Take a shower instead of "splashing" your face. Put your cellphone away and go hug a tree  I personally find nature a wondrous antidote to the mundane.  ...and btw I think Starward is right in saying you have done a great job at describing the bleakness of boredom. ☮️

I turn 55 next month so: I turn 55 next month so there's enough oil for my lifetime.  That being said, it is absolutely the time for us to keep finding new sustainable means for energy.
