Still In


 
So early again this morning
Nagging lower back
And she had the day off
So many doctors lately
Prodding, poking and scanning
And then that word
“Malignant…
About a quarter of it had to go.
Fifty-fifty chance of a bag.”
She sat by the dinette window
Waiting for the kettle
(Would there be a ripple from anyone
If…?)
Parents both gone.
Brother moved out east
To in-laws’ town.
There would be the girls
At the Church Book Club.
Her two cousins.
Couple of fellow staff
At the dollar store.
Pretty much it.
Opened the window
For some kindly spring air
Baby in the unit below
Bawling for breakfast.
Eastern sky above the roofs
Promising pink glory
The kind she often treasured
On her walks.
On the back lawn
Two little rabbits
Perched softly in the dew.
Lord has His eye on THEM.
And a couple of robins
Leaving off their wake-up tunes
For a game of chase-and-mate.
Beautiful
Yes, beautiful, regardless.
Smiling as the kettle went off
“Yes still in the Symphony, Girl.
Still in.”
