Company

 

Company

 

The following is the 43rd poem in Valley of Blue Hope: Poems Before and After Diagnosis of Cancer. https://www.createspace.com/4598960

 

This and the next three poems will close my effort to blog Valley of Blue Hope: Poems Before and After Diagnosis of Cancer. Placed after the “diagnosis of cancer” poems, they are meant to provide a coda to the earlier poems.

 

“Company” has a rhythm that a discovered and liked.

 

Company

 

When alone in later life I find myself with things

that thirst and die of heat in shade, I carry water

in my palms and at my pouring fingers lapping

the happy tongues this old soul soothes and receives

refreshment for itself. Every touch surprises.
