55 Word Essay
Patience. Painkillers. Recovery.
First words I heard before being sentenced to bed rest.
Sight and sound, my only portals to the world around me.
Smelling spring flowers blossoming strengthened my frail body.
Sheltered pale skin yearned for summer sun and sweat.
Isolation and neglect, as children play on.
Autumn leaves crunch during
My first step.
