Today’s Reality 10.08.2020

This is the second post in a series titled, Today’s Reality. The series will chronicle my journey to remission from Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML). My outlook as I begin this new phase in my life and blog series is living in the moment in mind, body, and spirit. I am not angry. I refuse to be sad. I am determined to live a long life with love and peace in my heart with the confidence of a better tomorrow filled with joy and humor.

Today's Reality - first chemo 10.8.2020

joints burning
the flames licking
the bones like
last year’s fallen timber
an insatiable hellfire
ablaze in a moonless
silent blackness

waiting for the rain
easter in springtime
lilies of the valley
resting in the memory
of their fragrance
spreading hope where
sin once lived
