A Beer, A Bath, and A Book

Cure For a Sad Day

I am sad today

not getting what I want

loved ones absent

missing orange tabby cat

I am sad today

art project gone awry

the clock eating up hours

nothing tasty for lunch

I am sad today

too much sad news

too much unrequited love

too much to say and no words

I am sad today

I get in my tub

with a beer

and a book

I am somewhere else

a far away land

with far away tales

and fairy tale endings

I am sad today

this is how I cope


what about you?

I am sick today

throbbing head between

deafened ears

Tucked beneath blankets

by tender husband.

I go to a good fantasy or rom com as well. Not so much beer these days. The comfort of non judgmental friends teaches me to accept my own emotions and be ok being vulnerable . Missing hugs and friends and the comfort of the fun crowd at the brewery.

Tender-hearted and wise friends have been an anchor for me all the days of my life, especially the last couple of years. Where would we be without their hugs, virtual or otherwise? Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Nothing quite like a beer & hot bath!!!

or contemplation, reflection and a beer at the river or bonfire for those vulnerable but necessary sad days. Thank you for sharing ♥️

Ah, a beer at the river. Or anything at the river. Such wonderful memories. Sure do miss you and your gang.
