Life is what happens…..

Monday of last week, I posted my first poem in two months (who am i). At that moment, I was feeling good, strong, and my recovery was going well. I knew I had open heart surgery on the horizon (Sept or Oct), but things were positive.

Then, my blood pressure dropped to dangerous levels.

This week, doctors have run more tests. They confirmed two arteries in my heart are deteriorating faster than they first suspected (one being the widow maker).

We are scrambling to get insurance approval, chest X-ray, EKG, carotid ultrasound, vein mapping, COVID test, and a meeting with an anesthesia team all complete.

I will do my best to answer all comments and read as many blogs as time permits.

This most likely will be my last post…

Storms

House of Heart

I am touched
by a storm
the tongue of a
fire that burns
away sleep.
A tide crashing
into millions of
crystal droplets
becoming the sun.
My heart is ripe
like summer fruit
sweet juices flushing
tingling veins.
There is a storm circling
the pit of my stomach rising
to ache in my throat.

Chair of Power

Didi's Art Design



Some are stuck in their seats of power
They think they are indispensable
It shows weakness
Not to free the chair for others

They want to rule, dictate
They have tasted the power
Now they are addicted
Are themselves controlled by it

Strength is to recognize
When to resign
Hearing the call of time
To leave the chair in honor

The sting of power is deep in them
They are poisoned by it
Their heart tied in a small space
They only hear their own voice

Give way to the power of humanity
Your time is up…
