Hiatus

Spring foal, first summer

I have a case of the hiccups—
nothing serious, more an annoyance.
That intrudes into the easy flow of writing.
Makes me pause and take a few slow breaths.
In the calm I continue, slowly forward.
And from that deep, dark place, they return.
Those rude little misguided impulses.
And irritate the heck out of me.

Maybe you’ve noticed, the here again--and then gone.
The cheery little post and then nothing.
Miles between scattered pictures days apart.
But please know there’s nothing really wrong.
It’s just a bad, bad case of the hiccups.
And for time that may pass while I say nothing—
I am simply holding my breath.

Taking 2 weeks to feed my soul--
a long, cool sip of nature's finest.

Nina I sincerely wish you total wellbeing and the grace of being at one with all that is. Go dream by a burbling brook and take in the strength of the earth.

We all have those hiccups now and then. Relax, this seems to make them go away quicker.

What a lovely way to put it! Hiatus is good, but hiccups is better! The occasional post in a period of calm .. just like hiccups!
