Morning walk

morning walk—
I dismiss the pinched nerve
in my hip,
resolve to make peace
with the thorns in my side

  3. This is really charming - and very philosophical, to boot! I love the way you fine inspirational in little nuggets of wisdom.

  5. You have perfectly captured what aging is about. We must endure or go crazy .

  6. "We must endure or go crazy." Or both. I'm not sure all my "thorns" are due to aging, but I love your comment ... Thanks!
