Medium Well

steak on plate

Medium Well

I’m not done yet
but outsides gotten
a bit tough,
been through the wringer
and seered just enough
to develop thick skin
firm enough to chew
starting to grey that
heart and dim my
vivid hue.

Well, you’ve made it to Wednesday, folks. Halfway there and, hopefully, a good lot of you are looking forwards to some time off. It’s much needed, I imagine and I can tell you I am glad to have it.

Either way, I hope you enjoy the poem above. There are times when not even I can figure out why I’ve written a poem a certian way. And why the hell I decided to use a steak metaphor for myself and how I’ve been feeling lately, I’ll never know. Either way, if you’re feeling a little like me, like you’ve been in the fire a little too long and you’re starting to get over done, I hope you find some time to cool off and keep going on.

Now, if you weren’t here reading yesterday, I’m including a link here to aid in the tornado recovery that struck my home town a week ago. EF-4 left some friends and family with nothing but a pile of splintered wood and a whole lot of trouble, and I’d be mighty grateful if you clicked the link and pushed a little love their way.  http://heroesmemorial.org/content/information-guide-washington-il .

Well, here’s to hoping your day flies by and that you’ve got something strong and on the rocks waiting for you when you get home at night.

    This Thanksgiving I praise God for blogging friends like you who keep me reading and writing and finding beauty and meaning in wonderful ways.

    Have a blessed holiday season.

    1. Well, thank you! 🙂 Here’s to hoping you have an awesome holiday, and that your Thanksgiving is as full of good times as you are of food!

Speak, human, speak!
