Connections: May 4

2 Comments

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAThe waiting chair

where time stops

where machines and tubes

beepings, flashing numbers

measure life

in lifeless pulse.

My chair once

sometimes my younger son’s

as we

waited

for one fading generation

now my firstborn’s

as he waits

for me.

  1. Sending good thoughts for good health. I’ve spent too much time in hospital waiting rooms and waiting chairs recently, and while machines and tubes may may be needed, life is measured in so much more than flashing numbers.

  2. Thanks for your good thoughts, Bonny. I visited your blog the other day and saw the photos of the hospital and of the mural on the wall and I was concerned for you. I tried to leave a comment, but I couldn’t. I’ve tried before, and have also tried to follow your blog but for some reason my attempts don’t work. My technical know-how is not impressive.

    I do want you to know that I admire your knitting skills beyond all saying. You are very gifted!
