The Unexpected

Following a long battle 
with broken bones slow to mend
from an automobile crash,
a woman in hospital 
summoned late night the on-call 
chaplain to her bedside and 
when he arrived she did say 
but one word, “Watch,” . . . whereupon 
she carefully raised her right 
hand to midair then placed her 
forefinger next to her thumb,
rubbing the two together 
for the first time in nine months. 

There was much weeping for joy.
