Heads or Tails Tuesday: Mother


Skittles Heads or Tails Tuesday prompt this week was "Mother." I'm going to keep this short and bitter sweet this morning. I'm not feeling well at all, so I will probably be late visiting others. Heading back to bed covered in Vicks in hopes that sleep will help fix me.

Mother
aching with love

my outstretched arms

remember catching

only your pain

- Katherine E. Rabenau

If you're afflicted with summer flu
feeling down and definitely blue
Unable to think, much less to do
Remmeber your buddies are thinking of you

Get better Katherine,

Rich

Richard's comment was so lovely :)
He's good at that isn't he!?

I'm sorry you're feeling bad - the Di/Mi/Si trio send many hugs. Rest.

Your poem resonated with me too.

I did the Get to Know You thingie. So if you need to be lulled back into a deep sleep come over and read all about me.
