I have spent the last month thinking in terms of blog posts. Whenever I encounter something interesting, humorous, or worth-sharing, I try to take a crude picture with my phone cam and store the idea to make a future blog post. They always seem like great ideas and I am sure I will share some soon, but I feel rather uninspired right now. So it has been a little shy of two weeks since I have last posted.
Maybe there is some poetry out there that would fit the bill for this occasion.
Paralyzed Yet Dancing by Colleen Elizabeth
Attached to every finger, each toe
The crooks of my elbows, the bends in my knees
Are tiny weights.
Alone, they are surmountable,
But together they are burdensome.
Paralyzed, I lay in bed,
While my imagination dances.
But each new thought and every
New idea, leaves as quickly as it came.
My mind weighted, the thoughts rush
But I can’t keep up, can’t think any through.
And so I wait, for relief from this weight.
Paralyzed yet dancing.
