Sheila’s Cane, After Surgery

some things

like ice crystals in winter

and sweat droplets

in summer



it turns out that

sheila’s cane is also

a naturally occurring object


i spot and come across

sitting down by my laptop


the cane hung perfectly on the

spacings of her chair

beside my bed, on

a small rack for

knick knacks


clothes still needing drying –

between the

cushions of our small sofa aka

love seat

and even in

the kitchen, handle

curved to slide between

slats of the small pantry i built

when we first moved to vermont


beverage-station nut can stuffed can’t

do without

got-on-sale at K-Mart

pine unit


officially the kitchen cane



could be worse

i realize

my belt loops could prove

awfully handy

for a cane

in need

but judging by the daily-increasing



of her foot and cane speed

room to room down the hall around the

corners negotiations

i’ll play it safe and just call it for what it is –

sheila’s (and mine) candy cane

About Me




    • ps – tried to post to your “summer memories” twice, but not sure it is showing, but felt you captured the appearing and re-appearing of our summer memories in our lives really nicely 😉

      esp like,

      “That time is like white sandbar in Pacific Ocean,
      which appears and disappears in the sea foam” –

      very nice, thank you heaven 😉
