Sighing Sadness

How to write inspiring

When uninspired

It happens

In a week of ordinary

The stars may not line up

The sun may not shine enough

The rain may fall too much

The pain may be too sharp

The joys too small

The trials too long

What to do when Gloominess overwhelms

When I can’t see

Can’t do 

Can’t get past

When I’m too big

The changes too small

When I can’t sings louder than I can

When the flame burns low

When things just don’t go my way

And yet a beautiful week

The sun shone

Rain fell

Stars sparkled

I watched spider weaving

Hubby and I visit Fig and Hoe for coffee

Buying tree and vine

I direct the planting

Using rich compost from worm farms

Food scraps turned to hummus

My house is cleaned

My tummy fed

My ears are filled with music

In Botanic Gardens

On Teahouse Lawns

There is poetry

There is pleasure

Why the heaviness

Who knows?

There is One

I praise Him at Church

I praise Him at home

And because of Him

And I know this sadness will pass

I know it is

All part of the Seasons

The ebb

The flow

All is well

All will be well

My spirit flame will burn yet

Brighter once more

So I praise Him in all things

Including the gloom

The sighing sadness

I praise Him

In the ability

In the Disability

Knowing my way is not the only way
