Where do hummingbirds go in winter?

A day of nothing,

that’s what I need to jazz me.

To recharge and kick start the engine.

But there’s always the danger of a day of do-nothing

leading to lethargy,

sad, morose thoughts.

Of not enough energy to do anything productive,

but enough guilt to keep away any enjoyment.

  1. Earlier this week I had a couple of days strung together where I couldn’t even muster up enough energy to read emails (which requires the bare minimum of effort, even on slow days). Thankfully, a couple of days didn’t stretch into several, and now I’ve managed to get back on track, staying occupied with sewing projects and much-neglected cleaning chores.

    “enough guilt to keep away the enjoyment”

    a perfect way to describe those non-energetic days,
    especially when they are not being used to recharge,
    but rather, to succumb to the call of the pending darkness
