So this is my first attempt at a tanka for today's prompt.
I haven't written much of anything since I've been so sick lately, (I was officially diagnosed with HG, a severe form of morning sickness) and really I just wanted to get something out there.
I've been feeling really anxious these last few weeks specifically because I have so many things to accomplish, and so little energy to do it with. So this is kind of just a quick manifestation of how I've been feeling.
Forever racing towards an invisible finish line, heart thump thumping in tune with anxious mantras: remember - slow down.
