sometimes. life shoots arrows

that pierce blindly

the released air


like sighs of sadness


hiccups of laughter

or maybe

gasps of wonder*

*I am having a week in which the highs and lows are engaged in a major tug-of-war. So for today, this is all.

    Sounds a bit like my own week, I must say. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for more highs throughout the rest of the week, both for you and for myself!

    1. Oh, thank you Kath! Poetry is not my forte at all, but I liked the way those words worked together πŸ™‚ It seemed much more productive to futz with words than to wallow.

  2. I have a proverb that helps me through times when I feel like that…”Do not despise the day of small things”. I guess another way to say it is do not despise the small things we see/accomplish/taste/enjoy in our days (even when our day is really bad!) I hope your week is better than you can dream.

    1. I like that proverb! Reminiscent of don’t sweat the small stuff, but a much more eloquently stated message. Thank you for the sweet words, Arlene!

  3. I sure hope the highs (or at least the middle ground) wins over the lows!!

    Love the poem despite the inspiration πŸ™

    1. Thank you so much, Alana! Things are looking up, I hope, and really, some amazing highlights have also been part of the week as well πŸ™‚

  4. As your week draws to a conclusion, hoping that you see goodness and growth as you reflect back. And may the days ahead bring a balance of peace that allows your spirit to rest. Thinking of you, my friend.

    1. I appreciate that Lucinda! Thank you. A week of massive highs and sorrowful lows. In the end, I suppose it sort of cancels each other out πŸ™‚
