“I'm smiled out, talked out, quipped out,
socialized so far from any being,
I need the weight of mortal silences to get realized back into myself.”
― John Ciardi
in other words, just plain tired.
I'd say "very tired" but that's
redundant, and lazy. So maybe
exhausted is the word.
I've been working every day
for days on end now.
Only four more days and
it's a weekend for me.
The weather matched my mood
today, we had layer over layer of
clouds - and a few showers as well.
I was born during a midwestern
summer thunderstorm and I have
always liked shower-y weather,
I grabbed my "blankie" and curled
up in a chair on the back patio,
watching the clouds skate past,
feeling the wind rushing around me,
and smelling the damp earth as
rain fell. It was wonderful!
