Celebrating a Year

week 194 ~ like a bee sting reality

with 8 comments

like a bee sting reality
comes as a shock to the system
releasing endorphins rhythm
of life slows down intensity
of perception sharpens you see
in a flash what shouldn’t be there
but paralyzed you can just stare
down pain as it hits homecoming
turbulence it’s a rough landing
when you fall dirt replacing air

  3. There is a kind of peace in your prose, even in the midst of pain. Lovely

    • Thanks. It’s somewhat anesthetized by exhaustion and the fact that I have gone through this before. And am at peace with the process.

  4. I wonder sometimes about what is the ‘reality’…the world that fulfills who we are or the one that fills our time?..oh just a random thought brought on by your fine poem. ;-)

    • An absolutely pertinent thought. I wonder too. Glad you liked the verse.
