just as school lets out
orange tractor drives by
smart phones click away

IMG_0551 (2).PNG

Sorry I couldn't resist, I was talking with my daughter in law by mobile phone while she was picking up my middle school granddaughter.  This poor guy jams up school pickup traffic moving his tractor to a job nearby. He couldn't have chosen a worse time, apparently kids were pulling out their phones and clicking away. My own granddaughter was one of them, she sent the photo to me via text to shoe me why they were laughing. At least that is all she did. She said that SnapChat, Instagram and Facebook are being blown up with various photos of "the orange tractor". I know it's hot out there big guy but wear a hat and keep your shirt on while driving slowly by 400 13 and 14 year olds just getting out of school, all with smart phones.

Title:  "Walk"

moving feet so well
exercise to keep my health
joy and sweat now joined

poem penned in ink
name signed on permission page
same pen, same end  

#20 

vampire vial next to
heart cadence spikes on graph
white coats and warm smiles

#21
warm and cozy
cancer waits to be cut out
not too soon for me

machine squeezes flesh
needle stuck down and deep
guide wire placed

#24

girls entertain me
while I wait to be dissected
running late

#25
sterile cold table
warm hand touches my arm
soft surgeon's voice, "I'm here."

Sorry guys, obviously I'm recording my experience as I wade through my new adventure. It isn't always pretty.

icky red stuff drains
into plastic tube from under 
mummy dressing

  #27
brain swims
round and round and round
thoughts come and go
