This post inspired by V.J.’s Weekly challenge #47: In-Between
This week, I need your inspiration – where do you go in the in-between? How do you survive it? Or maybe the in-between is ripe with gifts?
We will call you when the all the lab tests come back…
Pathology could take a while…
You’ll have to wait for the results.
The monkey mind churns.
Stealing today’s minutes in-between.
Helpless jumble of thoughts line up unbidden Bumping into each other Scrambling gibberish Is it five minutes or five hours I can’t stand another secondof….
Turn It Off
Short circuit the loop of lunacy.
Three minutes of song.
Shut frantic tired eyes
Melodies seep past fear laced neurons
Soothing the gray matter of terror
A foot tapping rhythm takes over…
Three minutes of happy.
From the before.
Filling the now..
“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”…
or a more recent discovery…
“Brighter Than the Sun”…
…whatever reaches deep.
As the clock keeps ticking
Sunup to Sundown
