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.
