Poetry Friday

March 14th, 2008 (07:38 am)
sick

Current Mood: sick

I am sick. If I were not sick, this post would have poetry in it.

Later edited to add:

I actually started writing a poem in my mind on Thursday, knowing I'd still be feeling sick on Friday.

I was, and then something made me incredibly sad, so my post was brief.

Last year, around this time, I posted some of Emily Dickinson's thoughts on nature.

Thanks. I was hoping it was a 24-hour bug. Now it's closer to 48. I am more than ready for it to go away.

Subbing for LW on Poetry Friday

Poor Little Willow is sick,
We want her to get better quick.
She read too many books,
About vampires and spooks,
Now her head is aswirl with the ick.

I hope you're feeling better today. EVERYONE around here has been sick, but I've been able to evade it so far. *knocks on wood*

I've been gone all weekend, and just saw your post. I hope you are well recovered by now!!! After being sick, sometimes it's poetry just to be able to stand up.

Thanks. I actually started composing a poem in my head on Thursday in anticipation of Poetry Friday that discussing the difficulty in standing upright. I'm better, but not 100%. I'm quite frustrated.
