may :: the journey

image via

my head is stuffy, and my nose is runny.
the kids are sleeping, heater whirring, {green} tea sitting, and cooling.
my heavy head is about to take itself off to bed, but I needed to voice
just a little creative release.
I have a little knot in my stomach that I can't explain.
it's something beyond a simple worry.
the whisper of... something.
something I can't quite put my finger on.
when I do I'll let you know.
a call maybe?
one from a distance...
I keep trying to catch it in my mind, but it's cheeky, and fast moving.

I am not making much sense, I know.
but don't you get that feeling sometimes?
it's like trying to hear a voice, but it's just a tiny bit below audible.

then the distractions take over and I'm wondering if he put his homework away
or if I should pull out an extra blanket for her bed
and I'll definitely sneak socks on her while she's sleeping
she always kicks the blankets off

life is a vapor
sometimes I want to grab hold of it with two hands and hold it as tight as I can
with the hands that are beginning to look like my mother's

other times, i let go
that peace is inexplicable.
