After the Fall

This is for the first prompt for Poetic Asides’ Poem a Day April 1, 2013.
We were to write a new-arrival poem. There were many new arrivals in our home after my mother fell and spent time in the hospital for twenty days.

After the Fall

She cannot walk
well after her fall—

so in walked
the walker,
the cane,
the nurses,
the physical therapists,
and the occupational therapists.
