Twitch of Sick
When I awoke this morning, I was feeling pretty low
and then I knew just where it was I really had to go -
The supper last night was a feast and tasted most delish;
no doubt, it was, when it went in a meal that was nutrish.
In my belly plans were changed, a new itinerary:
stop at tummy, turn around, a U-turn’s necessary.
I almost made it all the way I raced to lift the lid;
“Sorry, mom, I know I missed, I’m just a little kid.”
- a kid who has a not so funny, rumbly tummy twitch;
a twitch perhaps is not the word - a gastrointestinal glitch?
My Juicy Little Universe - poetry challenge using words ending in CH. Today's word: Twitch
My daughter texted me this morning, that she and her 3 year old son were "throwing up"... So my poem today changed from twitch in a spring poem, to one about vomiting. Nice change, huh?
She is far away, and my first thought was, she needs me. How can she take care of herself and her son AND keep the baby cared for and uninfected? Besides, she's my child!
In a few seconds the next text came through:
"I wouldn't want you to get sick, but this still makes me want my mommy."
Wish we lived closer.
