Spring + Winter = Springter

Let Me Rest


I must confess,

Today I am a mess…

and yesterday,

the day before too.


I can’t seem to remember. 

How to ‘perform,

Nor do I desire to.

Slumber left, no goodbye. 


I’m caught you see,

In Springter…

I cannot decide,

to fight or concede.


Void of fear and tear,

No laughter here.

Do I be still and hide?

Do I forage until I claim sight?


This is no game for me,

I am still but I do exist…

I fight to feel,

I perform and I appeal.



Author: I tripped over a stone.

I am happily married to Jeff. We are full-time RVers. We have two Goldendoodles; Dora and Dezzie. I have had Fibromyalgia for over 20 years and have learned a few tricks to deal with it, but it is my stone in the road! I am a Fibromyalgia Advocate. I have co-authored a book, The Shadow Boxers, Fighting Fibromyalgia (your personal journal.) It is available on Amazon and on my blog. I enjoy making Tribe Bracelets, also available now on my blog. Stone in the Road is another blog of mine where I post a collection of stories by bloggers that I follow.
