Under the Weather!

"I am sick and tired of being sick and tired." ~ Fannie Lou Hamer

I have been under the weather just a little this week. The Doctor promises I won't wither away and in fact I will be up and about soon enough. Given the fact that I am taking horse sized pills I am almost sure to be galloping around again almost any day now. I swear to Y'all that the nurse who stabbed a needle into my hip yesterday with a smile on her face, enjoyed my being sick much more than I do. I am lousy at being sick. Most people would snuggle down in bed and consider themselves lucky for the rest. Not me.. I hate it. I mope and moan.

I am sharing with you two poems today. The first is an Etheree about an animal that actually existed here on the marshes surrounding many of the outer barrier Islands of South Carolina. I have searched for the ghost herds many nights but have never come upon them.

The second is a Tritina about my siblings. I hope you will enjoy my short blog posting today and I will promise that I will be back at the long ones soon enough! And Now I am back to the sick room with liquids and nasty medicine!Have a wonderful day!

A Midnight Ride!

once roamed free
here. Nickering
their abundant joy.
Wild beauty Now extinct.
Sometimes, on a foggy night
folks have seen ghost herds frolicking
along the sand where dunes meet the sea.
I would Love to go for a Midnight ride.

Sibling Love

I have four brothers.
I have three sisters.
I share with them love.

It's not always easy to love.
Especially those "mean" brothers.
or those "Hootie~snooty" sisters.

Those beautiful, caring sisters.
Those wonderfully funny brothers.
Each one easy to love.

Brothers, sisters, a family, filled with love.

Hey Patsy,

I hope you feel bettter real soon. Sounds to me like you might have caught the ranchy-scranch from hanging out at all times of the night singing karokee! I am just kidding with you. I have heard of the gost ponies. I also hear in the outer banks of North Carolina there are still marsh ponies running around. I would like to go see them. Want to go with me? I love you and I do hope you feel better soon.

I was worried about you. I thought maybe you were taking a few days off. Glad you were well enough to write some. I have a brother and a sister, sometimes they are easy to love and other times they are not. I guess that is pretty normal with siblings. I enjoyed your writings today. Feel better soon!

Big time~ I would agree about the ranchy scranch except that I missed a whole week out there.. Maybe that's what has me sick~ Wagon wheel withdrawels? I would love to catch me a marsh pony. I have lots of room for a few. They are supposed to extinct but who knows what lurks in the marshes where the grass sways tall and thick? I do feel better than I did.. I love you!

Sunshine~ Thanks for worrying about me. I am fine though. well maybe not quiet yet fine but better~ still medicating and I'm sure those horse pills will help..
I am glad you enjoyed my poems. I agree that siblings are sometimes easy to love sometimes maybe we are too much alike?

Thanks to all who have stopped by but not commented! Have a wonderful day!
