Surgery Tomorrow


When the anesthesia mask is tightened,
I won’t think of scalpels.

No, sir.

I’ll remember the way wildflowers dance,
humming with honeybees.

Yes, ma’am.

A moment later, when my eyes openΒ in recovery,
I won’t count the stitches.

No, sir.

I’ll remember how sunshine slants
through trees.

Yes, ma’am.

Notes: A knee procedure is scheduled for tomorrow. (I’m not afraid. No way. Piece of cake.) Each time I have surgery, I always think the hard part is dreading it. (Until the anesthesia wears off.) πŸ™‚ Hope you have a magical week.
