  1. Mary, as I was leaving your site, I saw the notation of migraine and turned to this page–I am a sufferer as well–you captured the feeling so well in so few words!
    May I use this poem as a take-off for a poem of my own(crediting you of course!–not sure if I will, but…)

  2. Oh this is beautiful imagery for something many suffer–I’m reading with a headache now, though mine aren’t “classic” migraines. You write wonderfully–and I confess I’m a huge fan of teachers; they rate right up their with nurses, I believe πŸ™‚

  3. I’ve been there, I do understand the dark side of the moon. Amputation of a nerve at the 2nd cervical vertebrae. The rest of the nerve runs up the right side of my head, and it certainly lets me know too often, it’s not happy being amputated.

  4. I’m so glad to hear you don’t get migraines any more. I got the first one in my early twenties when some seafood caused me great distress. I’ve had them every so often ever since. I’m okay if I catch it early. Lovely tree and haiga. πŸ™‚ — Suzanne
