nursing – original poetry

featured in the ebook –

Nurses Doctors & Medical Health Specialists, The Poems


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…

boat bckground CeQHFcRWsAAVodaFeels very weird adding another notation to a comment I added nearly 5 years ago, and even more so, seeing my commentary even further below 2008. I think it gives me perspective for me to me more than anything else! But the poem still holds. The art form still works true to today (smiles).

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
