it used to flow so easily
i used to create without thinking
all the thoughts at my fingertips
only issue was which one to discover first

and much like stress impacts
high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease
i can feel how it slows and blocks
the rambling thoughts once so abundant

the big stress cloud
has changed its shape over the years
and it continues to try to thicken the walls
against my wishes

it tries this way and that
it’s owned me and fought me
i’ve brought a plunger and pen
and now i prepare for a fierce war

the pen feels unsteady
the plunger a little off balance
did i forget a shield?
am i ready?

take a deep breath
put the plunger down
take another deep breath
and blow the stress cloud away

  1. Wow. That’s really good. It got me thinking at least.

    Thank you.

    Thanks Jonathon – Daisy

  2. Daisy, I am sending you a big hug (( )) and I am blowing your stress cloud too

  3. I will always pour you a glass of white wine and you can relax, destress and write your issues from the day away. At least the home half of your day can be surounded by people who want to hold you and squeeze you and call you George, no wait maybe Georgette. Ya that sounds better. XO


  4. Thanks LOM – you’re always on my side. 🙂
    Hubby – you can always call me george (or georgette)
