COVID-19: Angels of Mercy

medical angels of mercy

deeper the pain
drawing them close
entering into their grief
they hold the hand
of the dying

sharing the burden
a present spiritual bond
of the unintended absent
leaving their tears
for the living

My deepest gratitude to all of the medical professionals who tirelessly go to work each day and night to care for the sick and dying. I lift you all up in prayer. May God bless each of our angels of mercy.

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

Monarch butterflies flooded our backyard this past August. I did not know their significance in my life at the time. Here is a post from my Facebook timeline from August 14th:

FB 8.14.2020

On Friday, September 25, 2020 at 11:00 a.m., I was diagnosed with leukemia after visiting the ER with what I thought was appendicitis. Here is my reflection from that day:

Today's Reality - Diagnosis 9.25.2020

among the char
dangling, a lone leaf
hugging a chrysalis
birthing its’ monarch
fragile wings
fluttering
flying
higher

her journey begins
