Observing 30 Unexpected 1
Patient Patient
(haibun with Collom Lune)

One call – to set up an appointment
Too early for (tomorrow) today…, but it will have to do

(On call today, everyday, yesterday – nap interrupted
One visitor, then another – for dinner…too

On point? Looking to retire – to rest,
To recuperate from being (healthily) manipulated…)

One tug, a gentle tuning, some ultra sound waves…
Happy to be slowly mending – finally.

A good visit
A nice review, expectations for
Both; gone well

(Note: I can do stairs with alternate feeties and
squat and get up much easier…today. It may take
a while but I think I am finally mending.)

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…

Observing 19
Spring Reaction; Go!
(haibun with renga)

Another year another change in policy
To protects the worker bees and families
Time for checking in with healthcare providers,
(Especially when there has been some lapse).
Test here test there, then wait for results –
Though some are put on notice for further trials.
The body that has aged mostly in good health
Might have a surprise or two after a few miles.

below the layers
and in between components
things are that should nought

so another appointment
for investigation looms

things are going to
be put right and corrected

(Note: While physicals should be annual and perhaps other tests in different
cycles, sometimes they are not. Not all tests can be done at the same office.
I am though so far, in fairly good shape for the shape I’m in…).

September 6

a renga

calendar squares work
only when you take the time
to see what is there

what appointment you’ve written
to keep – becomes a surprise

there, a faint door knock
peer out the window – a truck
for service that’s due
