Observing 22 Whether 2
Hurry and Wait
(haibun with renga)
Another day, another appointment
Whether to choose next available
Or wait another day – ‘No brainer’ – here.
First available, same day, hours to wait.
Too many specialists, at least locations are near –
Whether to wait until closer to time or
Leave early – does it matter where one waits…
Are close enough that they are only minutes away.
Then of course there is the other waiting and
Whether to worry about the unknown or
Just wait for all the results that will determine
The next steps…
Well checks done yearly
detect the unusual;
Treatment can begin…
Or one can go home; relief
For another year of health
Insurance can be
A benefit, even with
Those ‘high’ deductibles…
