oh my- so many endure this- especially now.
I saw the mark on her back, and thought a blemish a imperfection but, yes it could be cancerous.
I hope she'll be well!
So very sad. Hope it's fiction.
Yes, the poem is fiction. However I've had multiple surgeries for skin cancer making me suspicious of any abnormal looking growth.
Dearest Helen,Love the photo and the poem.Well, I was looking at my left under arm and mentioned to my doctor on December 23rd that reddish looking spot. He shaved it off for having it tested. Phone call came, telling that it was a basal cell skin cancer and had to be taken out deeper. So I had it done this week on Wednesday and it turned into a big hematoma. Looking forward fast to three weeks from now and things will be fine! Sending you hugs and hope all is well with you.Mariette
I read your beautiful piece twice and the obvious was the second time around. The first I was imagining a beautiful woman who was only appreciated for her beautiful face, not her backbone. Am i silly? Your poems are beautiful and thoughtful.
Read this and re-read this, very evocative.
Sweet, kind people should never be handled without care. It roughs up there beautifully smooth edges
Yikes indeed ~ smiles!
Somehow disconnected from the body
Its somehow heartbreaking, especially the last line
So many looking for something that isn't....good work Helen!
Well done...I like the unexpected last line...
So many things fade..in the end our health is what matters most. Hope all is well for you these days Helen. :-)
