A Poem for a Wednesday - Why?

by Andrea Mulder-Slater

I'm afraid

Afraid of what? You often ask me.

Of loneliness - I answer.

Don't be ridiculous, you tell me.
You'll never be alone, I hear you say.

As you quietly leave me.

Always.

Careful.

To shut the door behind you.

Caution...

That Figures...

On a day, just a day, quite like any other, Geoff was taken to hospital with pain in his lower back.

Thinking it might be a form of arthritis, a resident doctor, training to become a rheumatologist, performed an examination.

After carefully feeling each joint and calmly commenting on the absence of inflammation in the knees, ankles, wrists and fingers, the young doctor suddenly became visibly puzzled after she asked to see my husband's palms.

She left the room and returned with another physician who also appeared mystified as both inspected the skin located at the base of my husband's fingers. Cautiously, the resident explained that she and her colleague were perplexed by what they saw.

My husband glanced down at his hands and smiled.

"Those," he said, "are calluses".

No... really.

Cuttin', Pastin' and...

My dad and I shared a love of words… especially flowery, elaborate words. Though his vocabulary was far, far greater than mine, he always appreciated the bits of stuff I came up with and I always endeavored to understand the things he wrote.

It was quite by chance that I decided to incorporate my father’s words into my latest works of art. Paper, canvas and glue are the media of choice for me at the moment, and as I began to work with these materials, the pieces begged for words.

My dad wrote - a lot - and upon his death, left behind, oodles and oodles of words. I kind of like the idea of keeping his memory alive by, in a sense, illustrating some of his sentences. I plan on (at some point) using my own words in this new series I am working on – but for now, his just seem to fit.

Where did early man get the courage to climb into a hollowed-out vessel and trust that it would float on water?

As we see the Sun traveling across the sky from sunrise to sunset, we automatically apply our theory about the Universe...
