dwelling in a cave

feel like i'm in a dark cave

i see light
but the glare hurts my eyes

the air is out there
but i can't breathe it in

i have sinus infection to thank for both

my knees are creaking
  snapping out of place

i'm moving slowly
fearful of falling
 ( mom fell at my age
sprained her hip
never quite recovered)

so two shots
one to each knee
courtesy of doc

reaction to cortisone
brings hot flashes
i'm positive
come straight from hades

so i'll sit in my cave for awhile
venturing out only for work

gulping scripture meds with my pills
listening to praise songs
croaking along

keeping temper in check
while i try to get enthused
over -- of all occurances--
columbus discovering america

i'd tell you how that relates to jr. american lit
but i think i'll go to bed instead

    GORGEOUS cave... I looked at the precious pictures also. That's the type of place where George and I love to visit. Was there a waterfall nearby????

    You are an excellent poet.... Loved it... Sometimes, especially on a hot summer day, I'd love to just sit in a cave --and get away from the world!!!!


  4. Bless your heart! I pray you feel better soon.

    Re: Cincinnati...we only live three hours away, so visit frequently. It is a fun weekend trip and such a fun city. Did you like your time there?
