Don't know where this came from ... and so, I write ...

The sidewalk rushes up to me,
face to face. We kiss like old
friends --- been too long since
we've seen each other. So, it
says, how are you? What's
new in your life? Nothing, I say,
except for this problem with
my balance. That's new. Think
we'll be seeing much more of
each other from now on. What's
new with you?, I ask. Not too
much, it says, except the cracks.
Hell getting old. Well, got to go,
it says, things to do, peope to
catch --- great seeing you, we
will have to do this again, talk
about the good old times ----
and it was gone. Didn't even
say good-bye. Get up, dust
myself off, and make my way
into the rest of the afternoon.

|Karla, you made an interesting poem from an event most folks do not relish the thought of -- a face down tumble onto the sidewalk -- I guess you are ok since you did not mention any sharp pains or bleeding -- take care and stay alert my dear friend -- too many encounters with the sidewalk will leave you the worse for wear -- I bid you joy, peace, an improved sense of balance and love -- Jon Michael|

|It is good to look at and try and accept our problems with wit and humor as you have done here Karla, when our body fails us it is such a disabling feeling.
