Sick Day

Thank you to Stacey, Betsy, Dana, Tara, Beth, Anna, Kathleen & Deb for this amazing platform to write and share writing! What a wonderful community you've created! I'm honored to be part of it. Join us at Two Writing Teachers.

Today my slice is about that moment
when you feel it.

The scratch in your throat.
It tickles.
It hurts.
I cough.

Where did it come from?

The warm air
creates chaos.
Trees and birds are confused.
Nothing feels right.

December 15th.
It's SIXTY degrees outside.

Wishing I could be cheery and write about so many other things, but I'm congested. I'm coughing and have no voice. I'm tired and I have no time to be sick...yet, here I am. Sick day. 


  1. Here's to resting, reading and relaxing. Hope you're feeling better soon. PS: our weather is amazing too :)

  2. Sending you warm thoughts of health and healing. Such a bummer being sick. Get well soon.

  3. I hope you'll get to rest all the day, Michelle, warm & cozy with Bella. Yes, the weather has been so strange. We have a snow day today, big snow, still going, & the predictions didn't get it right.

  4. You'll be back on it and with it soon. But for now, rest up. :)

  5. Take care of yourself. Lots and lots of rest!!! Hoping you feel back to yourself very soon!!

  6. I've been sick, too, Michelle. I can relate. I'm convinced it's due to all of the weather changes. What a strange season it's been!

    Feel better soon!
