A breeze snake weaves
between leafy branches
I sit despondent
~ flies buzz
leaves rustle against pavers
other worlds are cold iced
sun that lightens a dreary day
does not this time
~ birds sing, dogs in distance bark
tired of sympathy calling
jaded as the dry weeds in garden bed
calling to be plucked
I have no strength
pieces taken from me ~ bit by bit
I am not whole but crumbling
spread to thin like
butter across a slice of bread

I must apologise for not catching up on those I follow, reading and commenting. I am trying, but if I miss out on some of your posts, I hope you will understand.
I am slightly drained of late, hopefully soon I will return. For now, I need to write
to get out what is in my head.
That you are worn out is evident in your words. Deep breath and maybe a nice cup of tea…or something of your choosing and your feet UP. 😉
thank you Tess – I wish at this point that would be the answer…just feel like hiding under the covers till it all goes away right now – sorry hate responding doom and gloom and I’m sure my readers will be exasperated with me ~ but I can’t do much else right now xx
T.a.k.e. it s.l.o.w. and e.a.s.y. No point making yourself ill. Okay?
I know hun… I can’t afford to become ill ~ just a day of well… not being myself ~ thank you, the last thing I want is to irritate people with the mood that I am in. xx
I get worn out too and I’m retired. Only my own schedule. Of course I multi-task less now or get too pooped to pucker.
😀 You get the point. I don’t pucker with anyone these days.
I get the point..and I hug you xx
Deep breath. 🙂
It is good you are writing, support is a good thing, you know what I mean?
yes I know and you and many others that follow me are so supportive – I can say words – thank you. I am lucky to have friends on WP and in life..
never worry about the ‘paperwork’, we know you are out there and reading and responding when you can. life goes on around us. get those words out jen and you will always feel better, and we will feel better for having read them.
you always manage to hit the right spot with your words – thank you Beth ~ now I have to focus, as I have another Service next Wednesday ~ my mind will be put to better use than feeling sorry for myself. xx
I have to write when I’m feeling like this – it’s the only way to get it out. Sending you big hugs xxx
Thank you Di, yes at least we have this outlet. I couldn’t imagine trapping in my words when I have these moods. Thank you for the hugs xxx
You need REST to see CLEARLY
I will wish for lots of rest and peace of mind
Yes a nice holiday sitting by the ocean sipping a cocktail would help me immensely I feel. Thank you darling hugs back xx
I must win that lottery and get a tropical island 🙂
And I shall join you 🙂 x
I know you will! It has to be a LARGE place many of us need a pretty place to run to and kick back and enjoy life 🙂
and we can have a WP party under the stars … Yes I continually dream xxx
Yes exactly my plan! We already know things about each other that our dearest ones have no clue about 🙂
🙂 how true lovely
Jen, your work world…while I know it is your calling…and your everyday world are intersecting right now and I am so sorry that your joy is literally being sucked from your beautiful capsule. Stay at this place as long as you need. I hope you can do something for yourself soon as I can tell you so need to recharge your battery. Hugs to you~
Thank you darling, I’m so appreciative of your friendship and those who genuinely care. I have another service to do next Wednesday so I can focus on that and not the shite around me… Hugs to you and wish it was a real one xxxx
ah i have felt that spread thin…
and the foundation beginning to give way under me…
a couple notes for you:
A breeze that snake weaves (cut that, makes it more action oriented)
between leafy branches
I sit outside despondent (cut outside, its assumed)
~ flies buzz by (cut by)
leaves rustle along pavers (what about against instead of along)
and dont worry, stop by when you can…i am here regardless…smiles.
I think we all suffer in one way or another… I listen to josh groban’s CD he is calming me if not making me a little melancholy now. Thank you for your support thank you for the notes… I changed and much better – hugs to you my friend.
Totally understand, been there felt like that. Xx
Hugs to you then darling and thank you xxx
Remember to take some me time Mumsy, I know there is a lot going on now, too much, but you need to be strong for them also, so this is done with me time, it is not selfish.
Oh me time, how I wish! Thank you darling, I know, I have to take care of me too..sometimes it’s not easy but I don’t want to moan and groan my life away either. Hugs and thank you xxxx
Take some time. A good sleep is recommended by a mad doctor i.e. me. 🙂
I loved the imagery… everything is distant and all we have to ourselves is us to keep from falling apart.
Thank you mad doctor ~ smiles ~ yes it only us who go through this now and then that can understand how terrible it can feel.
