Midwinter Sun

Have you ever had a day when it seemed everything went your way? A grand idea came and you worked on it. You made it happen—exactly as it should. It glowed. All day long doors opened. People said nice things—really cool, unusual compliments. You won a prize. Up was up. Little things were good.

Ever had a day like that . . . in the middle of a time when your whole life seemed wrong?

Everywhere my brain goes, it’s running into walls.

Hold onto hope. Take the chair by the fireplace. Have some tea.

I’ll soon be coming home.

It's hard to stay warm out in the midwinter sun.

You write like a Mary Lou Lord song makes me feel--all velvety and lovely. It's always a pleasure to come around here.

Hi Rakshit,
I was glad to see you were there when I stopped by. It was nice to hear your voice again.

ME Strauss said...

Hello mergrl,
Thank you for always stopping by to see me. You are a joy to know.

I wish you a wonderful Friday.

ME Strauss said...

Thanks Patrick,
Such a lovely description. It makes ME feel warm and velvety to read it.

Poor Melly got confused again when what Liz first disguised as prose turned out to be a poem ;)
Very nicely done :)
And yes, I had good days (maybe not that good, but good enough).
Sorry to hear you might be in a bit of a rut. Feb tends to do that to people.
Keep smiling :)

ME Strauss said...

Hey Melly,
I don't know that I would call thia a poem. But I sure like your response to it whatever it might be.

Yeah, February for how short it is seems to be the longest month.

February is the arm pit of the year. Agreed.

I am right with you there. Lori.
I am right with you there.
I need some summer sun.
