Work in Progress
a work in progress
the palette knife scrapes and plies
making it all work
Ripping the Soul
ripping apart the nucleus of love
tearing at the riptide of shame
pressing into the soul
oozing from the pain
seeping into the decaying brain
cells are left with no release
but to grow less and fester more
such is the diseased brain
such is the life with loss
there’s shame where there should not be shame
there’s blame where there should not be blame
there’s hate where there should not be hate
so much else dies with the loss
so much else goes with the pain of decay
so much leaves
so much goes away
never to come back
taking the time to release these pains
taking the time to allow healing
taking the time to promote growth
renews the soul
take a plant to soil
take a soul to greatly toil
both will surely grow

Although it was a pleasant setting, Elaine’s nerves were waiting for a mishap.
Taking a deep breath, Barbara fumbled with her purse strap and made a wish.
Making her decision about an assistant was hard for Jasmine, causing a headache.
Oddly, as Elaine was waiting for her interview, a call came from her doctor.
She stated, “We used the wrong patient’s information when we went to diagnose.
Stepping into the waiting room, Jasmine saw both women huddled, in an atmosphere of caring, Barbara’s arm around Elaine; Jasmine spoke, “Ladies, I hope this works to your understanding that I will need two assistants and you two are the only applicants for the job, when can you start?”
