Feb. 26/12 Old Poem, New Day, Inspired by Trusha

Inspired by Trusha,

[my son’s wife’s sister.]


You are stage three, grade three,

Triple negative,

Bang, bang, bang,

Fear, run, hide.


From across the ocean

An email warns, no!

Beyond all that you are still you.

Yes! pant, pant, true and I calm down.


For I come from a spark with

A soul to define and to nourish me,

I have a light, a path, a destiny.

No, panic no more. I am here.
