Morning poem -

the morning of my last chemo treatment

 

A sense of excitement!

I dress carefully and well.
I wrap around my wrist,
a pink breast cancer watch,
and a healing bracelet with beads
of Jade,
African Jade,
Amethyst,
Yellow Jade,
Turquoise,
Averturine Red,
and Jasper.
I’m cozy in a thick white turtleneck sweater,
scented with Ralph Lauren Romance,
and accented with a blue and gold waterfall,
flowing around and from my neck. 
A rose-quartz angel fits in my pocket.
I feel fresh, clean, ready
to infuse my veins.
My skin has continued to soften,
my eyes to open. 
The slow-growing cells thank me this morning
for this chance to grow and explore.
They feel honored.
The fast will come back, or not.
The tortoise is out of the shell,
has learned
to hop.
