More than afterthoughts

Consciously reliving

Escapism from breaking rocks

And attention starved clocks

Halfway through a cup of coffee

Sitting back and remembering

The joy in overindulgence

Not the reining in of feelings

Suitcases packed with hopes and dreams

Unpacked, unwrinkled by euphoric steam

In the midst of concrete habitats

And business as usual

Refusing to allow my senses to dull

Or my perspective to grow dillusional

Vivid special moments Injected

No layers of sadness detected

The routine world has been put on hold

Flares thrown into the abyss

Climbing the ladder out of this chasm

Heartwarming, as I reminisce

Have a very nice weekend!

Dictionary.com defines Hydra as a “persistent or many-sided problem that presents new obstacles as soon as one aspect is solved.” It cites its first use in English literature by the great Geoffrey Chaucer (c1340-c1400) which is where things get interesting because Chaucer’s reference is derived from the Middle French ydre which is derived from the Latin hydra which is borrowed from the Greek hydra which means “water-serpent”, and is closely related to the Greek Hydor for “water” which comes from the Proto-Indo-European root words…wed, wod, and ud meaning “wet water” which is the same as the German root, which is linked to the the…
