Ouch!

Out on the back nine,
just about to the last
hole, I felt a twinge
in my back. I’m sure
that last vigorous
twist I made to send
my ball flying down
the fairway did more
than I bargained for.
Sciatica pain for weeks…

Join Grace as she hosts our seventh Quadrille prompt to use the word “twist” and a word count of exactly 44 words…no more or less at dVerse Poets.  The link is open all week.

    oh gosh, that sounds cringeworthy. i love that you decided to take a physical twist with this – it’s so quaintly original and personal. lovely.

  3. It doesn’t take much to twist one’s back. I’m not in danger of such an event while playing golf though. Just picking up a pencil from the floor could do it.

    • Oh man, Victoria, you’re hard core! It took weeks for my leg and back pain to clear up…lots of visits to my chiropractor and ice packs.

  11. Your Quadrille was great, but not the real back pain. My husband golfs, and has had this happen. Not fun at all.

  12. Ouch is right. I know that sciatica pain. I wrote a poem titled Ouch it’s in one of my books. I’ll post it in a few day. Mine was mental pain though. 🙂 Great minds and all. 🙂

  15. A back injury is never fun, just the slightest twist sometimes and your down for days. Golfing isn’t for me, unless you count mini-golf 🙂

  19. I’d much rather twist (and shout) on the dance floor than twist my back on a golf course! Hope your body forgive you, Gayle! 😉
