A pain, within, has come to rest
it lies unto my left chest.
When walking on ice, be careful
for the results of falling, are painful.
I learned an new dance step
a week ago. The Costco trip;
reminded me of a two step fall.
A slight shuffle, one step is all,
it took for me, is what I said
at least I didn't hit my head.
My ribs are sore. Oh yes they are.
A painful sleep my rest did mar.
A rib belt is the treatment, you see
for which the doctor did agree.

Gosh - I'm sorry to learn that - it sounds painful! Are you OK?

I've broken many ribs over the years and it is the same old story. Get a rib belt and try not to laugh or cough. I'm OK, just hard to sleep, but the good part is I can type in more writings. Thanks.

The journey we make
during this life,
can be short.
Do we continue on
or do we abort?

Mario Benedetti wrote a beautiful poem called "Don't Give up" which has been a favorite of mine. This is the translation of one of it's stanzas:

"Don't give up, please don't give way,
Even if the cold burns,
Even if fear bites,
Even if the sun sets,
And the wind goes silent,
There is still fire in your soul
There is still life in your dreams"........

That is a lovely poem. Thank you for sharing. I like the free verse.

Is it wrong to write
about a love for another?
Someone who is not your,
sister, brother or mother?
Perhaps, I ask because the
loneliness began,
not having an adult conversation,
since I know not when.

I know it's not the same as conversing, but you do communicate so much through your poems and stories. Looking forward to getting that shot in my arm so we can meet up for coffee someday soon...

I am also waiting for the shot. Ms. E says she isn't going to get it so I need to enlist my children.

The rocks are hard.
My feet are bare.
Where is the sand?
It was everywhere.
I need to hurry,
A very strong urge,
Watching the creatures scurry
Before the strong surge.
The Ocean, a Sea
With waves now rising.
Up to my knees.
The dream is over,
I'm awake in bed.
Why are my feet wet?
Dry is my head.
Another dream, with emotion
When I see the beautiful Ocean.
