Cough of Cold Zapping My Strength

Cough of cold
Creeps up
Settles in, expands
Stays too long, far too long
Way after the sniffles and fever dissipate
Well after the sore throat and
Lethargy leave
Thank goodness these go.

Cough of cold
An unwelcome visitor
Lingers at heath’s doorstep and hearth
Eating all my food
Drinking down all the wine
Making messes, creating disorientation
Just let me be.

Cough of cold
Festers within a dry climate
Weakening my strength
Breaking my stride
Interrupting my speak
On and on you romp
Wrecking havoc

Waiting for spring to enter
Wanting wellness to explode
Needing 100%.
