Finding Nemo

Nemo-san Haiku

Haiku syllables
Five seven five and no more
Let us make some noise

Day 3 Tokyo
New boots REI top dog
Evil pain demons

Soon my achilles
Snap strain pop against the boot
My year away done

Last month surgery
Left knee still swollen and stiff
Now right foot: Satan!

Cannot walk.  Caged, Sunk.
In hotel alone.  Despair.
Why did I come here?

When one travels long
The most important thing is
Health. Thus, I am scared

But life gives lessons.
Each fall teaches, guides, strengthens.
Pain fades, gratitude.
