    Ninety nine point .

    Nose was running all day long. 

    Think it's just a cold? 

    Got myself some zinc.

    Sucking it down and hoping

    That it works real fast! 

    LOL.  Sure hope that's all it is.

    warmer weather here

    subtle hint that spring hides near

    hide n seek; you're it!

    ------------------------------

    Mid 40s  today

    But I slept the day away

    Body needs more rest

    -----------------

    I really did sleep the day away. I can't believe some days how tired I am! I have 3 medications that I'm on for various maladies that cause fatigue.  I'm afraid people will think I'm lazy. I need to get over that!

    I'm so fatigued too

    Spent the whole day in pj's

    But I'm not lazy!

    I totally get it mouse. I can't believe how tired I always am now. And if you are taking meds that cause fatigue as well, then it's no wonder your tired. It's easier for me when I just think how happy I am that those who think I'm not pulling my weight, aren't going though what we are.

    They don't understand because, thank god, they don't have to.

    How is it lazy

    To be so tired eyes close

    whenever you sit?

    _______

    Those who are judging

    Should hope they never feel this.

    Ask if they would switch?

    _________

    I hope sleep felt good.

    Your body knows what it needs.

    We understand. Hugs...

    I am sorry you are in the midst of the fatigue. I didn't know how bad I was til I finally crawled out the other side. Hang in there. Much love.

    Red. :)  I just find it easiest to write in poetry. Usually rhyme.  But Haiku are just fun for me. 

    Poetry is fun. 

    Measured syllables are too. 

    Together - Haiku!

    _______

    I write poetry.

    It sets my mind and heart free.

    Form helps make beauty.

    Floating thoughts should go.

    Write and send them on!

    amazing restful

    sleepy long naps; pleasant dreams

    ready to live now

    My heart is sad for those that are sad.  We handle deep emotions on a daily basis; sometimes changing by the hour (I speak for myself only). I'm glad we are a compassionate bunch!

    Freezing my ass off

    is not the best diet plan.

    Will it help The Pack?

    The polar vortex

    comes in on little cat feet

    like Carl Sandburg's fog.

    Fog

    The fog comes
    on little cat feet.

    It sits looking
    over harbor and city
    on silent haunches
    and then moves on.

    Carl Sandburg

    That poem was my inspiration. Here's an interesting tidbit from wiki:

    "Fog"is a poem by Carl Sandburg. It
    first appeared in Sandburg's first mainstream collection of poems,Chicago Poems, published in 1916.

    Sandburg has described the genesis of the poem. At a time when
    he was carrying a book of Japanese "Hokus", he went to interview a
    juvenile court judge, and he had cut through Grant Park and saw the fog over
    Chicago harbor. He had certainly seen many fogs before, but this time he had to
    wait forty minutes for the judge, and he only had a piece of newsprint handy,
    so he decided to create an "American Hoku".

    So my haiku was inspired by his poem, inspired by haiku!  Nerdy
