#Poetry: I’m Broken #MPBooks

Game over broken heart

Today’s post comes as a direct response to the news that WordPress’s Daily Post is ending! 😥  It’s so sad and I’ve only just discovered this (yes I know,  I really should have scrolled down the Daily Post page to read that post sooner!).  I have no idea why the countless daily prompts and weekly photo challenges can’t continue with volunteer bloggers running it.  The Daily Post has been a wonderful source of inspiration for me, it helped drive my passion for poetry and I discovered a love of sharing my photography with you all through it’s weekly photo challenges.  I’ll still share both things with or without the prompts, but in case anyone reading knows:  If you know or have a blog which has prompts for poetry/writing and photography then please let me know.  I’d like to find more blogs like this especially ones where you can share your links and discover other’s work too.

Today I am bringing you a picture which I think sums up the word silence very well.  With what looks like civilisation so far away, there is a great silence near this water.  The only thing you hear is a breeze in your ears but it’s a beautiful silence otherwise and the perfect place to take a moment to yourself and breathe 🙂

Cat covering eyes

The Gremlins in my Head #MPBooks

For most of yesterday I’ve been feeling like the cat in the picture.  I’ve had a splitting headache, found it hard to function and am struggling hard to shut out thoughts of guilt and sadness which have plagued me since I started coming down with something a few days ago.

I don’t like to admit I’m not feeling good, but the truth is that although the last few days of last week I’d been feeling positive, I started to come down with something and it seems relentless in wanting to put me on bed rest.  I feel like I’ve got a sleeping sickness, I’m just so tired all the time and when I sleep, which has been for most of the last two days, I don’t feel refreshed at all 😦Read More »
