Haiku – Shine and Potential: Aging’s Own Perogatives

on November 17, 2014

Colonoscopy.
Hardly topic one would chose
To write poems about.

Doctor blew my mind
Checking out if I’m the one
He’s supposed to treat.

“You can’t be the one.
You don’t look your age, my dear.”
Talk about delight.

  1. Well done! I love when our attitude shows our age! ❤

  2. Compliments always a gift. What better time to receive than when we are faced with an uncomfortable situation.

    You got it! Thanks for your comment.

  4. Ha! That made me laugh. Way to tackle a not so pleasant, if not subject, experience with flair! Well done, vivachange! 🙂

    I’m laughing. Did you get a photo in living color of your colon?

    Very fun poem!!!

    My brother died of colon cancer at 39 years of age, so I started having the colonoscopies in my early 40’s. Wish I could get my kids to do it, but at this point they won’t.

      I’m sorry about your brother. I’m glad you take care of yourself. My children’s father’s mother died of colon cancer. My oldest son accompanied me last week for my colonoscopy. He said one good thing that came out of it is he is scheduling one for himself. He is 50. I hope your kids follow your suggestion.
