nursing – original poetry
featured in the ebook -
if the words endure, they do so because they link the links -
Your career in nursing has
brought out all the best in you.
You’ve bloomed into a complex
caretaker presenting so simply
the heart to care plus a mind to
understand and instruct us.
Yours, is a dexterity of touch -
swift and sure to heal when needed.
Lingering and warm when requested.
Even if silently asked for from open
or shut eyes. And you lavish on us
that most precious of life’s
commodities, the one that
cannot be bought or sold -
your quality time.

heart and mind, caring and knowledge -
an optimum combination for oneself and to offer to others -
that’s yoga, that’s nursing…
i re-read my commentary on this poem when i’d posted it on my previous site, and decided to simply repost most of it here, as it simply still stands as true to me
Artist’s Comment: though appealing to most nursing people, this particular poem appeals and is attractive to recent nursing graduates or those re-entering the field
the recognition of the dual responsiveness demanded of the best of nursing personnel, the need for both swiftness and a slow steady heart, the pause to listen and the quickness to act, is a highlight of this work

i would hope, as with my poem dispatcher posted earlier this week, in this time since the 10th year since 9-11, that our understanding of each other deepens, through this marvelously meandering miracle called the internet
namaste´- con dios – god be with you
