ME/CFS

These words illusion
portray vibrancy of life
belie the mundane
wicked exhaustion my truth
drudgery daily routine.

(For Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge: wicked/ mundane; and BrewNSpew’s prompt: illusion.  Forgive me for indulging in a moment of self-pity.  Post celebration crash normal.  Image from personal collection.)

Postcard to the Mundane from the Water’s Edge

This passion surfaces, rushes, boils inside me,
raging against the rocks of my conventionality,
demanding release, commanding my pen –
its voice a roar obstructing constraint –
insatiable creativity.
I should be back soon.
