Greetings and Salutations,
I hope this finds you all in good spirits. I tried to get caught up, but as you can see with my posting schedule, I have not. During my first attempt at catching up on what I had missed out on during my initial injury, I aggravated the injury. So much so that I had to stop writing and since then incapacitated. Finally, this afternoon, I was able to bend, stretch, and move without the pain; and I actually slept through the night.
Okay, now with the update out the way, to the meat of it. I present to you Five Poems of Healing. My quest to complete my participation in the National Poetry Writing Month – http://www.napowrimo.net/ – made the healing process more manageable.
Special times together
like a feather
changes the tormented weather.
Confused by the state of people
I understand not their sepal.
It is pure insanity
the lack of humanity
the pounds of vanity.
It is absolutely absurd
the complacency of the herd
to not stand and be heard.
Unnecessary stories of heartache passes
unheard, it goes, by the masses.
Fellow earthly kin
what has been
is finally fin.
It has been a day of dealing
a day of nothing but feeling.
Pain brought me to the ceiling,
it had me in agony just reeling.
In desperation it had me kneeling,
However, like a little girl, I was left squealing.
Through patience and rest stealing
eventually it has become a time of healing.
Heart horrors hack hard.
Dismissed strength strangely returns.
The misery that has haunted is discharged;
blistering in the sinews of the universe.
Gently restored to a present state of mind
a deluge of memories devour the moment.
Rejuvenated by the gallery of tribulations overcome
the desire for legacy and production permeates.
