Under the Weather!
"I am sick and tired of being sick and tired." ~ Fannie Lou Hamer
I have been under the weather just a little this week. The Doctor promises I won't wither away and in fact I will be up and about soon enough. Given the fact that I am taking horse sized pills I am almost sure to be galloping around again almost any day now. I swear to Y'all that the nurse who stabbed a needle into my hip yesterday with a smile on her face, enjoyed my being sick much more than I do. I am lousy at being sick. Most people would snuggle down in bed and consider themselves lucky for the rest. Not me.. I hate it. I mope and moan.
I am sharing with you two poems today. The first is an Etheree about an animal that actually existed here on the marshes surrounding many of the outer barrier Islands of South Carolina. I have searched for the ghost herds many nights but have never come upon them.
The second is a Tritina about my siblings. I hope you will enjoy my short blog posting today and I will promise that I will be back at the long ones soon enough! And Now I am back to the sick room with liquids and nasty medicine!Have a wonderful day!
A Midnight Ride!
once roamed free
their abundant joy.
Wild beauty Now extinct.
Sometimes, on a foggy night
folks have seen ghost herds frolicking
along the sand where dunes meet the sea.
I would Love to go for a Midnight ride.

I have four brothers.
I have three sisters.
I share with them love.
It's not always easy to love.
Especially those "mean" brothers.
or those "Hootie~snooty" sisters.
Those beautiful, caring sisters.
Those wonderfully funny brothers.
Each one easy to love.
Brothers, sisters, a family, filled with love.
