Some days, I am truth-tired.

Knowing takes work; doing right is hard,

when what I need—


is deep arm-hold rest,

the no debate and defend rest.


Some days, the thinking I want to do is the wonder kind,

the comfort kind,

the kind where knowing and feeling are one smooth integrated line

and sighs are contentment

not exasperation, desperation.

Some days, I am truth-tired and loss-tired,

but I know what I need.

  2. I too am tire of the truth of this ugly world. Need some cheerfulness and sighs of contentment. Love the images of the wildflowers too!
