Haiku Bones-Uncanny

This week's prompt from Haiku Bones was "uncanny"

Familiar stranger
We've never spoken before
We know-uncanny

It is uncanny how you can capture a feeling with so few words.

Got to watch those familiar strangers you meet on the Internet!
I met a bunch of bloggers at Blogstock '08 950 miles from home. It was great, I had only known one of our group before the Blogstock. There may be a '10 version.

Considering all the people we know on the internet, it is uncanny that they remain unmet. Love this one Debra.

I'm wondering how you are feeling? I am just back from California - just catching up!

Debra Kay said...

I'm mending. The real worry and fear of losing power when I can't walk was a huge weight for a couple of days. Once that danger had passed, I was able to focus on healing myself and am making progress.

Today was the first day in a long time that hasn't absolutely sucked butt-and it has had it's moments and I've had to go lie down. Apparently I've turned a corner and can see that indeed I will get better.

My toilet is backed up and the dog room has sprung a leak-that's all the new trauma for today. I'm not using crutches at all, though I'm still wobbly and I can't really sit down-I have to lie down and be propped up with legs hip in the air AND lungs up high too-I look like a pretzel.

I'll be in the house for a few more days-there is a solid sheet of ice under the snow and I can't sustain any more impact-the body parts that aren't already sore for the first one are sore from doing the work of the ones who can't-my whole body is kind of grumbly.

Debra Kay said...

Oh, and the finger I broke in last ice storm hurts like a mofo....LOL.

You're becoming a haiku queen.
I love how your mind works.

I hope the body catches up with the mind soon. Oweeeee.

Open your mail when you get it. It just might make you smile. Even just a little ;)
