Observing 31 Unexpected 2
Unexpected Service

I made the effort to mail a package
That should have been mailed, well last week.

I told the recipient it would most likely be late,
Delayed because of more than one thing…

But mostly due to a few aches and pains –
Getting in and out of the car…uncomfortable

The clerk said it would arrive on time – but
One never knows… and that’s the bonus.

For a little remembrance of ‘your’ day –
From my coastline to yours

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.)

Forget Tiptoeing Through Tulips
(Collom Lunes 3,5,3 words)

Joy of aging
Rolling out of bed with
Aches and pains

Could have just
Been not bending correctly…but
What an “ouchie”

Hobble and bobble
Throughout the day, planning carefully
Every little movement

While Out and About
(prose and Collom Lune 3,5,3 words)

There is no whether or not
To answer a cell phone while driving
Especially if you do not have a
Hands free device – just don’t.
Be smart with your smart or
Not so smart traveling phone…
Remember when they didn’t exist?

Motto: ‘Safety First’
The expected “Salad Run” call –
From the neighbor…

Contradiction in Contractions
(prose and Collom Lune 3,5,3 words)

Whether to limp along or be
proactive in muscle discomfort…
Should ‘one’ be thought of as lucky
that only one set, group or side
causes distress?

At least there seems to be some signs
of recovery – with the aid of rest and
medical creams… And the lesson learned
that sometimes waiting for aid for a heavy
task is the right thing to do…

Age is just
A number hanging over head
So they say

Even Keel?
(prose and Collom Lune 3,5,3 words)

Actively choosing whether to participate
In a misnamed and cleverly titled gathering
At an early hour…well sometimes it is
Polite to be in polite company even when
Some wool has been pulled over one’s eyes…

Plateaus and peaks
Leave two choices keep rising
Or go down
