Written for: Poetic Asides April 2016 Challenge – Day 24
For today’s prompt, write a poem in which something is lost and then regained. Maybe a relationship is lost and then regained, or a special keepsake. Maybe it was stolen and won back. Or maybe it was in your possession the whole time, but you just didn’t know it.
A young girl’s story on the news tonight–
a horseback champion had a fright.
Accident of horrific proportion,
auto crash, she nearly lost her life.
The doctors told her, ‘your spine is broken.’
She refused the diagnosis spoken.
She felt best on her horse out riding,
would not give up, doctors had misspoken.
Physical therapy, long and wearing
in which she labored and got her bearings.
Accepted wheel chair, and was newly furnished
with straps for her saddle; she rides unimpaired.
