The Process of Healing

It has been too many days since I've blogged. Way too many. I have lots to write, just not a lot of time to do it.

Here is what popped out today and it came out clear enough to share:

I did as instructed
A lunge like stretch
For my right calf
And now it shakes.

The weakness frightens me.
Will I ever regain strength?
This process of healing
Seems so S-L-O-W.

The frailty of my "rested" muscle
Reminds me how long I've been down.
How long will it take
To regain my endurance?

Endurance starts in my mind.
I have to choose it first.
One step at a time.
One stretch at a time.

This process of restoration
Will produce greater endurance
Each part, if not painful
Is definitely wobbly at the beginning.
