BROKEN LEG, BROKEN HEART

DEAREST CAT, How much I shall miss thee, While I am in hospital with a smashed knee! And painful broken thigh. Then off to rehab for a very long time. I’d love to touch yout silken Calico fur, And hear your midnight, mellow purrs. On Christmas ~I shall not be back. Nor watch with you Santa, with boots,so black. I plan to keep writing, Irene my girl. Dreaming of the day, to touch your curls. Meanwhile, Elena and Eddie will visit thee. And, set up for you, a beatous, golden tree. Love, Mommy

Paul, how very dear a comment! wow! oh, the pain! and did not know my knowlegdge of “beastly language”was that enormous.I wear an Alert Boutton, that did not work! As if the button, would jumpstart with that feisty lingo? I addition.could not move at all to the phone? Elena Eagle,my daughter and new poetess here, knew something was amiss and came to my resue. Eagle was the first reponder,called the EMT’s! ROD is in my thigh and a plate for kneecap!Do pray for me, please? Respectfully, Panagioita~

Yes...very sad. We will keep you in our prayers. Rehab, not fun I know. I have spent a good portion of my life in and around them. But lots of loving people, truly caring with large hearts. Blessings my friend.

Prince de Mino and Ila, i was in a cool rehab place. Place when I BROKE my hip 8 years ago. some are far from nice! This will be a longer stay. they only handle body injuiries,not other problems existing in our world. thank you for sharing. Panagiota and Elena Eagle

Bob....guess you are right. Still nosurgery done. I am in a state of high anxiety that goes over poets heads Zero food, zero water Cannot walk at all.Irene is just a cat. this poem was about myself and my fears. Nobody knows or cares about poets.Just theweathdf forecast, birds of jokes ofthe skies.Humans? I think . Not..just impersonal still drives me crazy Won’t ne comment....surgery soo..PR.
