Sick


I dozed in the sun today,
its rays filtering
through the unwashed windows and the dust
that appears
out of nowhere;
its heat soaking in
through blanket, shawl, clothes,
skin; tracing its movements westward 
and down in an arc
through the panes and the insides of
my weary eyes.

  1. Hoping your better soon. We have two with the flu and praying no more...

    1. Sorry to hear it - I hope it stays at two (and not for long), too!

  3. Lingering winter colds here have left us feeling weary and longing for warmth. Yesterday's sun helped a bit. Hope you feel better soon. That piece of furniture in your photo is gorgeous, by the way.

    1. Sorry to hear you've been under the weather, too! It really does wear on you after a while, when the colds just won't quite leave. Thank you about the cabinet :) It was a really lucky find that fits right in in our old old house & makes me happy in its simple, handmade wonkiness.

  4. Thank you for all the good thoughts coming my way! I'm starting to feel better, crossing my fingers we can all be well (enough) for this weekend of birthday celebrations ahead!
