A Medical Appointment   Leave a comment

I gathered my strength to be a patient

For another medical appointment

To keep my peace and quiet my thoughts 

I brought a book I thought I’d need

But then there was no time to read

I squeezed its spine to quiet my mind

As though it were a comforting hand

Its volume thick — its pages unturned

Vulnerable, yet ready

Like a friend who need not say a word

But only remain sure and steady

Waiting to be needed


I once was blind

But now I see

What eyes cannot

Unless they have a heart



I Once Was Blind
