west wind



the west wind
ruffles my bottlebrush tree-
a mother's touch


(Thank all of you for your comments yesterday. It was a difficult day on many levels and I'm awake today with my throat throbbing and my head still bleary and throbbing, too, from the massive antibiotic I have to take when I have my teeth cleaned, due to a mitral valve occasional click. I don't do well on medications, as some of you know. And today is my long CFIDS day. I'm exhausted. I have notes for my doctor, since talking to him will be impossible. I may not see you, my internet friends, but I know you're there and I feel you. Know I appreciate you!)

Be well, Pris.

Thanks, all of you. I'm just back from my doc and crashing. Apparently, my body's dealt with so many meds due to infections this past year that the med yesterday at the dentist was the proverbial 'straw'. My throat is blood red from it and still throbbing and the headache hasn't gone yet. Pray for no more need for meds for awhile That's what my immunologist says will help the most.

Lavely work P, as ever.
As you know, Jill and I are thinking of you, hoping that things will settle down for you soon. I mean, with you sick, how can I harrass you? Get well :-)

Hi Polona and Sarah
Bit by bit I'm getting there. Thanks!

Ellen M Johns said...

Get well wishes from sunny Wales Pris, well, partially cloudy to be precise!

That bottle brush is superb. I only saw one round here last summer and it was when I was with B walking up to the corner shop, probably off to buy chololate!!!

It was nowhere near as slendid as your haiga specimen.

Pris said...

Hi Ellen
Thanks. I planted that tree in the eighties. It would be a lot bigger, but my husband insists on keeping it topped off low for some unfathonable reason. Sigh...

The bottlebrush reminds me of New Zealand. Beautiful bush. Beautiful haiku. Hope your feeling better.

Pris said...

Thanks, Ellen, and Michael, you tantalize me. When are you going to tell me when/how you lived in New Zealand?:-)
