A woman and man

A woman is a branchy tree and man a singing wind; and from her branches carelessly he takes what he can find.James Stephens

I nominate Morning

Margaret Atwood likens it
                To an amputation;
                             I would add that it’s a million experiences of death a day.
                                      Dry heaving, even vomiting, truly eventuates.
Forget painting on a smile – walking hurts.
Now you know what
It feels like and it’s so
much worse than imagined
I haven’t cried enough yet, only intermittently but I’ve died more than a million deaths.

Black and White Wednesday
