Pre Winter Blues-A poem for The Seasonal Affective

Most days-personal, lonely
Most days-only
Bearing

Growing-barely
Aloneness- care me?
Step forward hair length
Where strength?

Only work
Working
Only doing
Getting through it
Crazy
Only

Times sad
Feel bad
One step forward
Courage strengthen
Further awkward
More onward
Stepping slowly
Going lonely

Friends parted
Guess I’ll start it
Forward partly
Step one
Step two
Incremental
Supplemental
Slowly
Mostly

Retrograde
Two of spades

Mostly laying
Work displaying
Broke
And lonely
