#SOL16 A Slump





Today feels slumpy. 
Worries heavy on my mind
Fear twists my stomach. 
Every news story
breaks my heart.
And frightens me.

I want to unslump myself.
Sunshine, 
blue skies,
smiles on my children's faces. 
The coconut smell of sunscreen.
A sweet berry smoothie.
Light and hope. 
Faith and love.

Hoping the gray suffocating 
clouds of slump
Give way to blue skies,
fresh air,
renewed energy
to try again.
