I am experiencing unexplainable, unbridled optimism.
This is making me very anxious.
It’s Not About the Pencil
Having coffee with my sister today
Our elderly mother’s having problems with speech,
She asked for a pencil just yesterday.
Candy found a pencil and paper within reach
She’ll communicate some other way?
Candy sits very still
Mom looks at
the blank sheet,
the pen – cil
down to her feet.
she had something to say.
she’s planning to pull a MacGyver someday.
