#331 of 365 – 3 Haiku

3 Haiku



in the waiting room

people, all sorts, come and go

everyone limping



I walk―slowly swing

an unbending leg; elder

lady passes me



one knee, all braced up

the other, so jealous for

attention it hurts

    Very vivid description! (Sounds like a piece of torn cartilage involved in a join…but I’m not a doctor nor do I play one on TV. I have, however, had every knee problem known to orthopedic surgeons…including “iliotibial band syndrome” — which your stiff knee resembles….hmmmm)

    The well known “RICE” treatment should help a lot! (RICE = Rest, ice, compression, elevation)

    Be good to YOU! Kung Fu may be perfect for you…but I wonder…

    Oh my gosh–I know how painful knee injuries are, the worst!! Wincing with you, and praying of course, too.
