Over the Edge
So, sorry! Haven’t been able to find the spirit to write even a greeting card.
But no, I’ve not dropped off the edge; I’m close though.
I’ve been ardently trying all the ‘tricks’ to pull myself out of this mire. Planted veggies and flowers in pots on the balcony, harvested some beans; love the flowers. I always derive such joy from planting and watching the bloom of flowers. Okay, so they are doing fine … no joy!
I’ve walked and walked and walked; thought to add a positive to health issues; hasn’t done much; legs are stronger. And I’m smoking like a chimney which isn’t helping the financial end either.
Art work … I won’t even venture into those dark waters. My mind wants to paint again; I stain canvas and look at the blank.
What is this path we tread?
Where is the end, do you see?
Why here, not there,
Once laughter, once light!
Once challenge, once hope!
I fear this path
To endlessly roam
Without laughter or hope
So, I’m searching just now for positives.
