Your Dying Spouse 582 - Read To Live
The following sonnet was written in response to Bob Hostetler's question 'Do you plan your reading?', posted on the Steve Laube Agency blog on December 19, 2018
My reading is today informed by fell circumstance, despair,
and by the demons that have swarmed
my life; they’re everywhere.
I read to keep my pecker up;
I read to save my soul;
I read so I may daily sup
on the dreams that keep me whole.
My pancreas and lungs are full
of dire malignancy;
but my heart will ride the wild maned-bull
and when the bell rings, I’ll be free.
So in the bloody dawn, my friends, watch this flag unfurl;
pancreatic cancer, on hearing my name, will cry like a little girl.
(And yes, to the British-educated, ‘pecker’ shall always be a colloquialism for ‘courage’.) Over to Queen, with We Are The Champions.
Thanks to Carol Ashby, Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart is back on Kindle, and will be available in paperback soon.
Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.
Marley, the canine waif from Afghanistan, whom WE helped save, has a Facebook page! Please drop by to see how happy he is today.
Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links.
