Ex-tending myself for far too long
In-tending to slow and embrace ease
But I was just Pre-tending.
Now Con-tending with the after effects of the stress.
Unin-tended consequences none-the-less happening,
When you have a Tend-ency to overdo it for far too long.
So now I must At-tend to my not so selfish needs
With extreme Tend-erness in body, mind and soul.
Tend-ing to my hearth and home madly, gladly with ease.

Every year I pick a word to help guide my year. This year TEND came up with ease, shining down giving me peace and healing just to say it. I started a healing path in late 2016, and found my ROAR, my voice and power, again this past year…..now I want to TEND to my inner fire, my home within and surrounding me.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.
I leave you with an additional image for TEND. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
