Fall Hazard

Every April one of Bud Hunt's prompts totally captures my attention and this April is no different. This year Prompt 12 was compelling to me.

It's the living room,
the kitchen,
the bedroom,
the bathroom
the stairs,
the grass,
the parking lot

Lurching, stumbling, reeling left right back front
Doing his best to put one foot in front of the other and stay upright
My honey, my soulmate--

Fearless, courageous, never conceding
to the nerves frayed by an awry immune system,
muscles atrophied and weakened by MS

Fall hazards everywhere--
Doing what is possible
and in many cases seemingly improbable
Meeting danger head on with determination and PLFs

Moved by your poetic story. You generously shared your struggle, your love, and your never-ending positive outlook on life...doing the improbable.
Thank you for sharing.
