Pain often reclines at
the back of my parched throat
on other occasions it
runs smoothly uninterrupted
in green veins, free-flowing,
as it is always the case love
is conditional, whereas pain
fills up the thirsty eyes,
morphing into tiny tender
crystals cascading down
the gaunt cheeks
without a bang or a crackle
so quietly, so gently…

Utterly rich in emotion. So well done Tanya.
Bill my friend thank you so much for your kind words, truly appreciate it! Early morning how you get up and exercise I don’t know!
Oh… and the early morning workouts are painful…. but must be done. 😊
Wish I can be so determined, to do exercise every morning without cribbing 😬
You can do it… I will root for you!
Excellent description. I love the idea. 😊
