When the Pain in My Side

I lie quiet in my bed.

Nativity in there,

little hard heads butted up
of the Divine
and his folks;

shepherds' hooks,
crowns of the kings;

poke of a hoof and a stick and straw
and roof peak;

and too many points
of a terrible star.

Thank you for sharing this Merry. An interesting picture indeed. I think I'll read it to my hubby as he was having tummy pain today - and we do have a wee nativity scene so he'll relate :)
 
Thank you, pamb. I'm surprised to find a comment.

I'm sorry that your husband is in pain or was when you wrote. I hope he is feeling better. Pain is demoralizing.

Wishing you both the best,

Merry
 
Hi Merry,

Just found your post and message. Please do post your poetry again when the spirit moves. A sense of humor goes a long way with pain and just about everything else. I'm still chuckling about the star with too many points, such insult AFTER all the bits of naggy straw :)

Hi, Pamb. The word "naggy" is new to me. I may not know what it means for sure (just using my imagination), but I wrote it down and hope for the opportunity to put it to use. Thanks!
