Health Haiku


This week's theme: HEALTH

http://www.youknowthatblog.com/



Taken for granted
We all appreciate health
When taken away


Natural balance
Elements to healthy life
Mind, body, spirit

If you prefer Limericks, then why not hop over to Madeleine Begun Kane's Blog


Here's mine for her challenge:

A fellow who loved fine cuisine
Thought barbecues rather obsence
When approached by an Aussie
In a polka-dot cozzie
He quickly escaped from the scene

  10. I have to be extra careful too. Being sixty, having multiple health problems and no health insurance had me get on my guard. Si far I am handling things on my own pretty nicely. I think that it is determination.
