Unsettled

It's not worried. It's waiting.
It's not anxious. It's antsy.
Mild disturbances,
Little perturbances,
Agitation in cogitation,
Niggling nettles.

I got 'em.

I'm unsettled.



UPDATE: As I was checking email I found one from my cousin with a link to the music of Max Cohen. Some settling of Lime is occurring. Also, thanks to all of you who shared favorite poets and poems as well as a few sweet stories I so enjoyed them all.

pins and needles of the mind.... shake 'em out. at least there's a long weekend to recharge and regroup and simply relax ahead, wheeeeew.

Without knowing what the 'niggling nettles' are, I'll just say that 'waiting' and 'antsy' aren't necessarily bad things. And 'unsettled' could be just getting ready for something new and interesting. Without knowing any details. . .

Nice piece of poetry, too. . .

waiting can be agonizing and unsettled can be torturous...

You sure it's not just gas? I'm making jokes, 'cause I can't give you a hug. Consider all of our comments a hug, then. Better yet... consider them chocolate. Whatever the cause of your uneasiness, I pray that today the Lord turns your mourning (so to speak) to dancing.

furiousball, diarrhea on a long car ride would be utter torment.

fadkog, arg, i feel your vexation.

shadow, pins and needles of the mind, what an excellent description!

desmond, agreed. the current nettles do hold potential for positive change

mary, dang! i'd better go shower and comb my hair!

s, i should probably do that too

gman, i've been tempted

mona, peace is indeed a gift

craver, you mean i could have solved all this with some mylanta??? thanks for the virtual hug, prayers and encouragement.

May the vex not be with you.

Though when I get that way a long hot bath helps.

And there's always Turtle Dove Thursday! Just sayin... ;)

Oh I hate that feeling of unsettlement... it's so frustrating!

I hope you are feeling less anxious. You need a massage and a bubble bath.

Indeed. I'm working on that myself, of late.

Happy Easter to you and your family!

Why have I got a mental image of a swamp?
