AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Good haiku! I can relate -- I broke my wrist a couple of years ago -- showering was quite the challenge. :)

I did use a letter opener to scratch under the cast.

Here's hoping you heal fast and well!

Bad luck, Gemma. I hope your arm soon will be OK ;-)

Leo said...

In childhood, me and my pals used to think that autographing the cast helps heal the injury faster! I wish I could come by and sign yours, Gemma! But I wish you a speedy recovery and loads of writing to come after :D

Prayers for you to heal fast and good.

Oh ow! I hope you get better soon. And please take care of yourself and don't overdo! (The one trouble with Dr Time is she can be kinda' slow ;>)))

I recently had both my writs/thumbs rebuilt to overcome damage by arthritis. I was in casts/splints with each one for 8 to 10 weeks. I learned to do lots of things in a creative manner!
Wishing you rapid healing!

Oh, No!!!!! This is awful. I know you are miserable. I broke my ankle years ago and I remember the inconvenience vividly. Hope you can still work your camera without too much pain. Will be thinking of you. This will end...I promise you :-)

Judith C Evans said...

Take care of yourself, and allow "Dr. Time" to work. Nice poem!

Wonderful piece the image is precious. When I am sick my 3 year old always tries to comfort me it reminds me of that warmth.
