HAIKU in Reponse to One Deep Breath's Prompt of 7-16-07

I diaper that slow
toilet leak again
slower plumber

This week's prompt at One Deep Breath is "bodies of water." Yeah, I know a leak may not seem like a body of water to a normal person. But when you have badly arthritic knees and nearly couldn't get up off the floor after trying to turn off the water to the toilet (the handle was totally jammed), any leak at all seems like a tsunami! And believe me, it brought back memories of diapering when I'd wrap my old towels and cloths around that thing's smooth rounded foot. LOL!

That's an unusual take to the prompt.
Sorry to hear about your bad knees.

How fun! Great take on the prompt!

Ah, yes, tumblewords, I meant this entirely to be funny. Yeah, the situation wasn't fun, per se, but I laughed all the way through it...

Funny, but sorry about your knees ;(

To all who commented on my knees: I have high hopes of their improving as I get more weight off. In initially lost over 100 lbs some time ago, gained a bit back, and am now losing again... it can only help. :-)

I just loved the unexpected perspective in this! Very every day and very zen!

Oh, you totally have my sympathy!

It took a very long time to have the leak repaired in my apartment's heat register - during a cold snap last winter. Brrr.

Great way to express frustration.

I love that this is the first poem this week! Made me laugh aloud.

And I, Patois, loved that you laughed! That's what I was feeling as I wrote it.... and during the diaper escapade, too

I could see that as a body of water. :)

Hope the plumber comes soon.
