Down and Out

Heavy clouds bear down                                              
upon the day outside so
best to stay in bed

                            Coffee warms my throat
                            warm blankets enfold and beg              
                            just give in - and rest

    But, laundry calls me
    chores abound: dishes, bathroom
    Rise - attend to us!

             Guilt swirls through my thoughts
             but - I bury it and choose
             to get well instead

Quote of the day:  You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe,
                              deserve your love and affection.    ~Buddhist Quote


  1. Right choice. Forget the laundry, it won't go anywhere. Restore your health.

  2. All those chores, and feeling poorly, and still you managed to summon up an entertaining slice...bravo!

  3. Love the haikus, each alone, and together. They tell your story.

  4. I hope you feel better! Haikus are such a fun choice. This was a really good slice. There will always be chores, but sometimes it's most important to take the time to get well.

  5. Rest and recover is the plan for today. Hope tomorrow brings sunshine into your world.

  6. I had to do the same today. I spent my entire morning catching up on The Ellen Show from the week, and the rest of the day has been spent reading blog posts. Seriously - without these amazing distraction, my laundry and dishes would be done, because I don't have the will power to just rest. Best wishes to get healthy soon!
