An incomplete poem by dws

My Road

January 2014
It’s Back
Just before an eight year celebration
A rude guest uninvited

No Start date yet
Full Bone Scan negative
MRI and CT
Doctors develop a plan

Today is urgent, important
Each task is interrupted by another
Some must be done
Others are more important

Maybe
Treatment will buy time
Treatment will steal love and bring love
Waiting for the urgent

Work, write, rest, dream
Lonesome, driven, distracted
People, places, work, dreams
What is important

Blessed
Employed
Loved
Free

Thank you
Crazy Ones
Dreamers
Explorers

My Road
My wilderness
Opportunity, privilege, discovery
My journey

Art
Words
Science
Care

Deep peace
Urgent anticipation
Hope
New Light

September 2013, rising
November 2013, double
The chamber has a bullet
Time for a new verse

Acceptance
Surgery
Celebration
Focus

Fear
Anger
Acceptance
Panic

Just over eight years, November 2005
Shortly before gathering to Give Thanks
Life changed
Cancer
