The need for rest


fearing imminent implosion
trawling within recently written
sincere words of praise
lost amidst considered answers
and infant ideas
climbing to the top of a post
before descending: my brain gaining grip
then slipping to another level,
gripping again
brain refusing to engage
immune to the gems of intelligence
which yesterday thrilled me
unable to do this task justice
while the need for rest
attacks my senses

Writing 101 Day 8: Expand a Comment.

  • Do you ever peek at the comments you’ve left on other blogs? You might find ideas for future posts. Perhaps you left a response on a writer’s post but could have said even more, or wrote the beginnings of a larger discussion.

Apologies for not carrying out this post as suggested; it has been a busy week so far, and today my brain is too tired to to focus on anything except the muddy puddle located at the front….

WordPress take note
you have written “wrote”
when “written” is the correct way to write it.
“He wrote”, “I wrote” and “they wrote”
are right ways to write the word “wrote”
but you wrote “or wrote”
and that’s not right
you wrote “wrote” wrongly
next time please write it right
(though I should correct that right to “correctly”, as I’m writing about correct grammer)
and write “written”, right?
