THE POET AlSO RISES

        The Poet Also Rises

Rising each day at three in the morn?
Hey, I am not a farmer planting
corn!

Just an aging grandma, blind as
a bat.
Covered by her tortoiseshell cat.

Not bright as most of you here,
A reply now and then, makes her
smile and cheer.

On affection for many here she 
has a long list.
But after hours too long on the iPad, 
her lovely arthritic hands hurt and
twist.

But I will be back when the sun rises.
And dream tonight warm, autumnal 
dreams of belly dance surprises.

Love, 
Panagiota

Panagiota, I like the play on words in the title. Ernest Hemingway was a complicated individual and a brilliant writer. The festive seasons approach. Looking forward to more poems from you. -Richard

I don't like to go into ailments! Ugh. As I know many here have physical challenges, too. We are bigger than any such challenge. PR

Great title for a poignant write... I have to ask: Are you really blind? If so, what you've been doing is simply all the more remarkable!! ~ Curious cat

GW... Poets do exaggerate....you have seen all my typos, right! On an iPad, for me it's like typing on a tiny index card. Even with the ability to expand, I am a lost cause. Add 12 wpm? A basket case. And it takes me triple the hours to match a fast typist, ....your four hours takes me twelve! PR
