From tiny beginnings to oceans I discovered the world in words

The Virus (sedoka)

A dark thunder cloud
is residing in my head
waiting for electric charge,
cooling rain, shivers,
sheets or forks of lightening
to crack and release pressure.

It’s just a virus
taking precious time from me.
I am tired, numb and useless.
battle with the cough and cold.
I feel I am not quite here.

Just a few more days,
my head and breathing should lift,
my appetite should return.
The sun will come out.
New me will run into life
whole again, smiling, alive.

  1. Thank you Rising Hawk however I do wish I didn’t have the virus.

  2. When the weather changes, my sinuses do not play fair.
    Breathing for sleep can be difficult with out over the counter aid.

    Be well soon!

  5. oh this is good – I thought initially you were angry! I like the way the meaning turns in the 2nd verse – hope you’re better now?
