Early morn‘ first session

Bettina and Kerstin

Greet me at the physio suite

Lucky me –

Two good looking sporty ladies

Bettina still doing practice rounds

Teaching me about posture and

Muscle use

Besides the pleasant threesome

Naturally conducive to some

Play of hands and words

Body and soul

Mind and libido

Love and cognition

I love to read in Kerstin’s eyes.

Besides the atlas –

First spine joint in humans

Of 24 as Kerstin says

7-12-5 – as I remember their


She moves her head perfectly


She laughs as I gaze at her –

The tortoise moves are

Most difficult for me

Kerstin’s head

Blond hair and hazel eyes.







Natural light early in the morn‘

Songs of the early birds

The eyes open and close still

Wanting more of the dream

Yellow colours

Light blue and turquoise waters

Dove grey and midnight-blue

The sun’s orange hues –

My latest drawing:

Sweet Kerstin and her good looks

The best therapy for an old scribe.

Alarm! I’ve overlooked the

Hochvolt for my knee –

But staff is helpful and hands me

Some herbal tea.

It’s great to have time out

Away from spouse and

Rented room

For indeed I’m lucky to be more

Stimulated to carry on with

A better living.

I hope Kerstin speaks English

For I’ll offer her my books

Thoughts about Love and Art

And the outlook of my views

Wishing to listen to hers.




The Reha Scene

A trip of two hours

Pulls me out of city doldrums

The sleepy village

Doused with a deadly mix

Of diesel and polluted air.

The daily trot of a poor man’s

Living exchanged with the scent

Of roses and lavender –

Paradise found.

But one’s always challenged:

Ergo bike

Inference electric therapy

Pool exercises

Infrared room

Steam room

Foot pendulum exercises

One on one physio with

Young Kerstin ‘s a highlight

Then back for the early lunch


When the stomach grumbles.

Careful-wise Waltraud

Cat-like Brigitta

Lecturing Mona

Happy-go-lucky Margareta.

Resting time

But not on the adjustable bed.

Swimming in the huge

Calcium saturated pool.

Another day another round

At night’s TV Arte finishes

Worthwhile movies

Much too late.
