following the aroma,
eager for the taste
and dreading updates,
I’m on a cloud,
hoping for a
silly girl, because
the broadcaster speaks
about death (again),
with a tainted mindset,
my heart aches
just like days past
and I wonder
when this madness
will ever end

Keep dreaming, it makes reality bearable. 🙂
Great advice, Ian, along with hoping and praying…:)
You say so much in so few words and what’s left unsaid is intriguing.
Thanks so much for your kind words, John! Big hugs back!
I stopped watching/listening to “the news” a long time ago.
At home, I don’t watch the news as often as I used to, but I still do off and on. The woman I work with listens to NPR every day, so it’s there that I hear it constantly. It’s good to be informed, but much of what is reported these days is depressing, and a solution seems unreachable; yet we can only continue to pray for a miracle. This poem was inspired by Brussels, so I’m late in posting it…
This may be worth pondering?
Thanks, Ben, I’ll check it out!
Beautifully stated, Lauren. I too, have a love/hate affair with the news. There is so much bad going on in the world that I don’t want to hear a constant barrage, but Iat the same time, I feel a need to know what’s going on in the world, good or bad.
Thanks, Michelle, and I basically feel exactly the way you do. 🙂 ♥
Ahhh, sounds like election time again. Sigh. 😉
Well, it is, but this was actually inspired by the attack in Brussels. 😦 ♥
Yes, the ugliness is everywhere and in too many forms to count. Terrible.
There is so much ugliness. I wish there was a pill to heal instead of patch. Nice metaphors and the rhythm is exceptional.
I know and that would be nice, wouldn’t it? Thanks so much for your complement, Kim! I appreciate you! ♥
There will always be idiots. Hopefully there are enough good people to counter them.
True, Binky, and I hope you’re right. At the very least, we have to hold that belief…
Thanks so much, Jason!
