Oh Rosemary

I’m sick. My nostrils flare and yet the air cannot get through. My nostrils flare again but nothing. I hate this. I cannot bear using my mouth as an inhaler. I look to my right; damn it! My handkerchief is almost full. What shall I do? Today is another dry day. There is no water. Fetching seems so tedious I cannot even think of the distance to the bore hole. My mind is already tired. Oh, how can this be?
I take a deep breath with my mouth. Damn it I can almost remember the days when breathing feels so natural. The discomfort is killing me. Tick tock I hear the clock on the mantle. It is only 12? I have to do this for the rest of the day! Oh no! I have not even a rag I want to spare to blow my nose and there is no water so I cannot depend on using the sink.
It gives me no comfort knowing that others have to go through this as well. I just pity them. I pity them and myself as well. I close my mouth and try to breath in my nose. It is blocked. Such is the extent of my ordeal.
The foolishness of which I came about this cold makes all this not worthwhile. I was smelling some plants; Rosemary (the spice to be exact). Isn’t its purpose to bring me joy? Is this the price I pay for plucking it prematurely? For robbing it of the vanity it gets from being admired, from being scented?
Oh sweet smelling Rosemary, I wish I could put you in my chicken and never desire another plant again! Oh rosemary, I wish I could grow you in my garden and watch you as I wake and lay down to sleep.
Your punishment does not deter me from loving you; your wickedness does not keep me from wishing to be in your presence again.
For a second there I forgot my woes. This could work maybe! I’ll get better before I know it.rosemary

  9. Many of the so called free sites have pop up advertisements on them.
    However, they might try to converting you to pay their service in the
    future because they need to make money. Aside from
    being able to reach out to more people, a website is
    also a very cheap way to market your products or services.
