Secrets are for spies





Explore a face.



Mine reveals little.


This tired old mug:

fit only
to be endured.


my mouth
bears fruit.



Yet secrets remain.


I can’t help you with them.




are for spies.








The poem above was the last piece of writing from my teens.

Your comments are always welcome! 😊

Hope everybody is well? πŸ™


Thank you
for reading.

Apologies if this post is less coherent than normal.
Disorientation prevents proper concentration and editing.

I’m really struggling, presently.
The virus, mentioned before, has flared up for a third weekend running.
(Assume it’s flu, but don’t understand why symptoms keep recurring, intead of easing?)

Feeling feverish, exhausted, and in great pain.
Very difficult sitting at my computer, or focussing on words.

Though I refuse to abandon blogging.

Starting to get anxious about the current situation.

Was too poorly for much shopping, during recent weeks.
Using limited reserves.

Venturing out midweek(after five days) I found supermarkets almost stripped of food.
Never seen anything like it.
Now I can’t restock.

I’ve largely been socially isolated for almost 30 years, due to chronic health problems. Going to the shops is the only place I regularly get near others.
Yet still catch colds and flu.
Buses are full of coughing people, all year round, in England.

      1. Ken, you are way too hard on yourself. Lots of people on WP have noticed a decline in views………there is just so much going on in the world that attention is else where. It was good…. sending you love and light! πŸ™‚

          1. Yes, people are at home but some many of us have a lot more on our plate with everyone at home. πŸ™‚
            Blogging is very hard work – it takes a lot time and it must be done for the love of it……….do it for yourself and if others enjoy it too, a huge bonus!

          2. Yes. You are right.
            The stress has got to me, Wendi!
            I’ve been hit by two NEW infections (on top of flu, fever, ME, vertigo, and all the rest).
            My brain is being affected.
            When I saw you didn’t like the post, I wished I hadn’t written it at all. Hope just drained out of me. (Mood swings can do that.)

            Sorry to be such a drag.
            Hope things go well for your week ahead.

  1. Hello Ken. After replying to your comment on my post, I see you are fighting a longer battle. Apologies for that, I assumed it was about the Corona Virus which has been sweeping the planet. Sending positive thoughts and strength. I am saddened to hear some people have negative comments (which of course have affected you). As with everything bad, there is always some good and maybe your altered state of consciousness will pay unexpeceted dividends? Best of luck. B

    1. Thank you, Bella!
      How nice to see you drop by!
      I think post-viral depression has hit me.
      (To be honest, I’ve been wondering what I had, it seems atypical for flu, going on this long.
      Splitting headaches, repeated fevers, severe pain, exhaustion.
      Getting slightly better for a few days, then worse for several days (then better, then worse again…etc, etc,)
      but so far, hardly any coughing.)
      Have spent more time than usual finding interesting new blogs, though.πŸ™‚


  2. Your last poetry from high school is curious. I’m sorry for your troubles. RE: people reading…after beating myself up trying to figure out why…..i found it all has to do with their schedule/what is on their mind, etc. not my writing. Who would have thought? Better luck to you. Thank you for reading my poetry today.
