Minding -- Poetry 2009

Minding my own business with simple
daily tasks of checking email,
updating website and poetry blog -
Abrupt demoralization descended-
The weight of my universe
convulsed stopping thought.
My body ached with emptiness.
A weariness and depression
stuck to me; clinging to this web,
I floundered in deep despair
unable to fathom the loss of heart.
With the advent of several tears rolling
down my cheek, a sigh escaped my lips
reminding me of the high pitched whine
of a web trapped insect fighting to be free.
Within a breath or two, hopelessness
reversed leaving puzzlement in its wake.
