This week’s prompt for Poets and Storytellers United’s Friday Writings is: The Visitor. Here’s what I came up with, stimulated by today’s every-so-often visitor.
A Morning Caller
She drops by from no where
I didn’t know I had heard
but here I am
enjoying her flash of inspiration,
cleaning the microwave.
I’ve a grand update about my Knee Joint Replacement Recovery Update. Happy, giddy news. I danced in the kitchen this morning to Creedence Clearwater Revival, Martha and the Vandels, the Hollies, Santana, and others. My new joint loved it. Knee-haw!
Off I go to visit other Friday Writings participants. Please, come join me.
Both the story in the poem and the knee update cause for celebration!ReplyDelete
Susie, the microwave cleaning was a great segway, I wasn't expecting anything so different. Sounds good with your knee, do your therapy, move the foot back and up as far as it will go. I can almost kick my own behind, for sure squat low.ReplyDelete
My left knee was 2011, seven years ago I had to give up golf, my left new joint was twisting too much and it hurt for a couple of days after each time I played. Haven't golfed since.Delete
I told the surgeon I wanted to be able to do four things with my new knee joints. Dance, hike, swim, and bicycle. Dancing a bit the other day gives me great hope of wonderful things coming.Delete
Glad to hear you're healing up.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Liz. Tomorrow marks 6 weeks, amazing!Delete
Congratulations on your progress.ReplyDelete
When the visitor is painless, that is something, indeed, to dance about. :)ReplyDelete
Is it the Muse? Can she fill those shoes? I love the image of you dancing again!ReplyDelete
The Muse certainly got that old microwave shiny. Just realized housekeeping can be a creative venture too.Delete
Giggles always add wonder to a visit. The same goes for nicely healing joints. I am sooo happy for you!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Magaly! 🙃Delete
That's wonderful news! Come on over and will play records and dance to the oldies! Hugs!ReplyDelete
That would be so fun, Diane!Delete
...I'm glad to hear about your successful knee replacement. Yes, Knee-haw! Do they make colorful shoe in my size?ReplyDelete
Thanks, Tom! Colorful shoes in any size! 🙃Delete
