How I Feel Today


I feel gassy brassy
loose-y dousse-y
plucked and pressed
‘n raw “n juicy!

iPhone woke me
way too early:
grouchy face
is frowning surly!

Surely, sour
slides to bitter;
biting at the bit
am I!

Grrrrrrrr!

Trust

Trust comes in tiny bites,
samples
savored by the tongue.

Not too hot
or bitter;
cloying
or ephemeral.

Trusts can be
legal puzzles
biting at your gut…
bleeding through.

Or confidences,
ennobling and
intimate.

But to last,
trust needs to enter
on tip-toe.
“til you know
it flows
whole –
enriching you
as it goes.

Welcome trust.
It is the strength in wishing,
the bend in believing,
the breath in loving!

A Living treasure!

Resentment

Bitter, bilious temper
Apoplectic acid
Furious venom
Liverish bile.

Breathes exasperation.
Represses hostility;
Feelings of inadequacy.
Overwhelming powerlessness
To act or express
Acrimony, rage and fury.

“How dare they:
Insult me
Dishonor me
Mistreat me
Outrage me
Affront me
Slight me
Shame me
Deride me
Revile me
Vex me
Tease me
Taunt me
Jeer at me
Step on my toes!!!!!!!

You caught it.
But don’t hold on.
It’s rancid!

Re-send back:
Equity
Understanding
Honor
Respect.

Exhale.
