2- Written in response to prompt:  V.J.’S WEEKLY CHALLENGE #48: COMPASSION

As my husband lies in his hospital bed

blood clot placing pressure on his skull


full of tubes

I offer compassion as best I can


After today’s melt down

I offer myself compassion

For years

I have been this tenacious old lady

reaching to the top of the tower to water the plant

day after day

strong and determined

love alive and beating

The flower continues to bloom

the giver of water had a meltdown today

She will be back up those stairs tomorrow
