In Which I Consider Wellness

How often, I now ask, do we take note
Of days like this, in which there is no pain,
No coughs or wheezes, no scratch in the throat,
No twisted limbs or joints - naught but a plain
And ordinary health? This state is mine
Right now; I walk without a hitch and feel
Not one bit out of sorts. In fact, I'm fine.
We take these days for granted, mostly. We'll
Not even recall that we had them when
Next we fall ill or hurt ourselves, I'm sure.
Our bodies go unnoticed if they've been
Free of the ills that make us insecure.
But if you're well today, just take a sec
And savor how it is to be unchecked.
