Five Days after the Accident

This little fella has graced the dash of every car I’ve had in Mexico for the past 16 years. Soon he’ll have a new home.

Five Days after the Accident

I am infused with happiness—the most I’ve felt for days—
and hereby I announce that I have shed my dormant phase.
Since my poor car was murdered, I’ve been in isolation,
but now it seems I’m free again and feeling great elation.

I went five days without a car, just stayed at home to heal
while friends did all my shopping. One even brought a meal!
But now I can get groceries, take Morrie for his grooming,
rested from five days at home. Relaxed from all this wombing.
Now that I’ve got wheels again, I have no need to fret.
Simply alive and mobile is as good as you can get!!!

The prompt today was “infuse.”

    Brava! So glad to hear you are rested and recovering nicely. Laughed at Linda Crostfield’s comment. Did you buy a new car already , or getting by with a little help from your friends? Gentle hugs, nothing none crushing. Do you remember that Lowell gave Georgia a hug once and broke her rib? She didn’t let him know. Shhh, our secret.
