One never wants to say “no” to life, and hope is the driving force into tomorrow, as illustrated by this Monday’s Poem of the Week. Given the vagaries of my schedule coming up in future months, from now on, this post should be considered just Poem of the Week, as it may be difficult to hew to a strict Monday schedule. Hope you check in, regardless. Be well, stay healthy.
Yes & No
The woman with fewer than six months
got engaged today
in the exam room. Both

why – perhaps the breathless
part of him that already mourns and calls
my office over and over saying What
can I do for her, what
can I do?

He wants her last six months to be as happy as possible. Lucky woman ~ I’m sure you’ve seen some partners turn tail. Beautiful story, beautifully written. Real poetry.
