Toska #NewNormal #A2Z


(Russian) A sensation of great spiritual anguish without any specific cause

I think of hands

hands of people 

textures, colors, fragrances

tastes, times

and a blur, a cloud

an entire future in a fog

the heart like an old fort

abandoned yet existing

hope like a heartbeat

there yet not felt.


This is my 6th #AtoZ, read the posts from previous challenges HERE.

  1. Your longing for things the way they were is almost palpable

  2. An ache for nothing and everything...
    Is this when people say they feel restless, but they don't even know where they want to go or what they want to do?

    Happy Friday!

  3. Completely chaotic... that's what toska sounds like to men.... I think I have felt like that a time or two. I want this, I want that, no wait I don't want anything, just leave me along. Chaos! Have a great day.

  4. Your posts are making me aware of words that I have felt a couple of times but never really knew they existed!

  5. A new word for me... but the sensation - that feeling of being in a fog - that description in the image. I know that all too well
