April 2nd

Soar throat.
Stuffy nose.
Energy lacking,
a cold,
I suppose.

Chai tea.
Chicken Soup.
Should help my body
to recoup.

Boys cleaning.
Birthday wish.
I give them
a hug
and kiss.

Conversation,
light and mellow.
Back to bed with
an owl blanket
bedfellow.

Sickness settles in,
but I focus upon
87 birthday wishes
that rattle
on
and
on.
