Treading water and less pain…

This morning I got a phone call from the construction company office. She was concerned about me. She told me to stay away from the builders as they are ‘vile’. I already am not going back, but I so appreciated her humanity. No ‘this is not my business’ and she directed me to the appropriate place and said she would phone the site and tell them to not speak to any one. Few managers are like that, eh Helen.?

My cousin phoned for our weekly chat. It’s always good to chat and laugh with her.

Apart from that it’s seemed a long day. I watered the garden just after daybreak.

On waking, my ankle hurt so much but it is less now. Also the bruising on my back is less painful. This is much welcomed.

I've read poetry since I was nine and have written creatively since I was fourteen (probably long before that). After writing book reviews and social comment, I decided I wanted to write poetry. I have no formal training, but I surround myself with poets and their writing. I am honing my craft.
I have two published collections which I don't feel good about, but have been published by and other publications. I live on the south coast of England with my daughter. I am seriously ill.
