It’s been an emotional week here on the Pickle Farm – though with four small children I guess every week is rather emotional one way or another, but perhaps this week I’ve just noticed it more than I usually do. So, here it is, things I know about emotions for Yay For Home’s Things I Know Link up.
I know that four year olds can be a crazy mixture of frustration, happiness and humour. Mine is simultaneously frustrating and lovely and hysterically funny.
I know that a sad baby makes everyone else in the house sad too.
I know that a happy baby makes everyone else in the house happy too.
I know that some emotions are surprising.
I know that you can be terribly sad about someone else being sad. My Brother-in-law’s father died somewhat suddenly this week. I never met the man but I am so sad for his loss. So sad that someone as lovely and funny and smart and caring as my brother-in-law is hurting. And so sad that my nephew will not know the joy of having a grandfather…
I know that guilt can be a great thing… when it is someone else’s and you reap the benefits of said guilt!
I know that I’d rather be angry than frustrated.
And I know that I’m glad I am no longer an angsty teenager writing bad poems like this one. And I’m only sharing it because Glowless happened to mention something about Typo on Flog Your Blog Friday, and I have such a weakness for all things Typo… and bad poetry…
On a river of uncertainty.
In a warm bath of hope.
By the fire of sadness.
In the cold rain of love.
So what do you know? Or better yet, what bad poetry have you written??
