Welcome to ~On A Whim~ !

I hope you find this a place to relax, meditate, chill, just get your mind off things.

Nothing special here. Just a little conglomeration of things that make me happy or that make me grateful...
maybe make me think (a little).

I hope they do the same for you.

Thanks for visiting... xo stace

The Weight of the Day

Shadows clamber
through the windows,
cohorts of the rising sun.

They bring with them
troubles of new day.
Odd that the advent of sunlight

bears such darkness.
Nighttime morphs into dawn
and twenty-four fresh hours

settle down upon me
as the huge black weight
I’m forced to carry

rides me hard--
spurs buried against my side
flat-out in a dead man’s run.
