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 physical therapists,
and the occupational therapists.
