Silly really,
this relationship of mine –
how I hang on, despite
the tears, the fraying
edges, ignore
the waning
of fibres,
how lifted
to the light
I can see through –
warmth no longer
a reason for
and yet
there are memories
woven in between
loose threads –
heartache and
consolation –
and so, like Linus
I cannot let it go.

(Decided to join NaPoWriMo, hosted by Maureen Thorson. Β A little slow on the uptake, I’ve started with the early prompt: Β to write a letter (poem) to an inanimate object.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. I love this. I started today myself. I love this month! I have taken the NaPoWriMo challenge many years but I’ve never quite written 30 in 30 days. I will give it yet another try. It will be a challenge because I am taking a 9-day trip this month. OMG! I look forward to seeing your takes on the prompts.
