! ! ! ! ! ! ! A cruel joke... Senryu


Nursing a fracture
On bed, leg stretched out in cast;
Friends smile and sign...

    I am so sorry, Mamta. Even warmth and friendship can be hard to bear
    when life has become so inconvenient. Thank you for sharing your
    feelings. I completely sympathize.

    Love,

    touched a nerve there

    during rounds...i used to see the anguish on the faces as people would laugh and joke...write funny things and then scamble to get out for a slam dunk...which was ruefully watcched by a young heart

    very well written
    cheers (Report) Reply
