Plans

Plans
~by Michelle Hulse

Crafted with solemn intentions,
one card wobbles and
several stories crumble.

But the foundation endures,
sturdy and secure,
until another slip.

A feverish fog.
Two afternoons in bed.

Plans
pushed aside
to rest and heal.

Promises to rebuild the house of cards again
next month or next season.
Maybe next year.

Might as well swear off
sickness and disruptions
for good.

  2. Oh, I'm so sorry you got sick! Maybe your body's way of telling you what you needed most was rest? But still. I hope you're feeling better now.
