Boredom is Setting In

This is going to be a  long three months.  It’s only been five days since my surgery and I am so bored.  I am so bored that I’m trying my hand at poetry.  Below are my first two attempts.


Gentle Waves

Sitting on the end of the dock

Staring at the vastness of water

Lost in thought

Dreaming of floating away

On the soft gentle waves

Free of all physical boundaries.


The Warmth on My Face

I lean back in my chair

Face tilted toward the light

Feeling the warmth

Washing over me

Making me smile.

    1. Thank you, that’s a really good idea, I could try my hand at suspense. When I do, you’ll have to let me know what you think.

      Thanks Eric.

  1. What kind of surgery did you have? My forever mom had knee reconstruction surgery recently and she was down and out for a while. I’d hate to think of you in any kind of pain like that! Get well soon! And keep writing! It’s great therapy. Love, Wiley.

    1. Thank you, I was imagining where I wanted to be that was anywhere but lying in a bed on my back with my foot elevated. It’s going to be a long three months. At least I hope to become more mobile after the stitches are out.
